Too many umpires are looking for attention
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – It can’t be too much fun being an umpire. My guess is you can never please everyone. There’s always going to be someone complaining.
That might explain why some umpires seem to be looking for attention. I’ve seen just a little too much enthusiasm in some of their calls. It appears as if they are happy the runner is out.
They shouldn’t appear happy about anything. They’re the umpire. I’d like to see them leave the displays of emotion up to the players.
I’m JB and that’s the way it oughta be.
