In baseball, the umpire, when not ignored, is typically vilified, and yet he is as much a fan and an active participant as anyone else in the game. This memoir presents baseball from that point of view.
Calling upon his 35 years of experience, the author provides the reader with a humorous retelling of what it is like to work as an umpire in youth baseball leagues. It is a perspective rarely afforded to the spectator but one that is a surprisingly powerful evocation of both the nitty-gritty bits and the grandeur of the baseball experience.
