Discussion: Fort Myers 65 aaa

I umpired the 65AAA at the Lee county Complex. I didn't umpire the championship game but was told Mello Financial was the winner. On a side note, the 50 Major plus started today in Naples. Playing for Miami Power is Jose and Ozzie Canseco.

Discussion: QUESTION FOR UMPIRES

Olden Slow--I didn't have any problems with the players. When they complained about the huge hole in the batters box, they had a valid argument. When they wanted to know why, for 550.00, there was no official scorekeeper and the scoreboard wasn't being used, they had a valid argument. I worked 8 consecutive games without a break. When I asked the Site Director if SSUSA had water for the umpires and was told that I could purchase bottled water at the concession stand, I had a valid argument. My problems had nothing to do with the players and everything to do with SSUSA. Bob Walker never intended for his organization to become a multi-million dollar corporation. Because I love this game, I will continue to play on my 65AAA team but someone else can umpire.

Discussion: QUESTION FOR UMPIRES

SSUSA needs good umpires. You can umpire, keep score, verify lineups, have pitchers sign a release of liability if not wearing a mask, keep track of HR's, listen to players complain about the playing fields, try to explain why the scoreboards don't work, and then be asked by the tournament director to evaluate the teams just prior to being reprimanded for forgetting to take off your ball bag while doing the bases. After the teams pay a $550.00 entry fee, you too can earn a grand total of $20.00 per game. I have over 30 years of experience from Little League to College and I umpire because I love it and it's my passion. I umpired SSUSA one time and I can assure you that it will never happen again.
