Talk Softly, But Carry a Big Stick?

Last night  my son completed the umpire training program and he may now officially serve as an umpire this spring. The baseball director gave some parting advice at the end of the training. He said, “Remember, if someone gets in your face, it is a good idea to speak very quietly in order to calm them down,” and then added, “I did that last year and the guy just walked away and kicked over the Port-A-John.”

It is going to be an interesting season.

      Thanks Precious!!! He is really excited. Fortunately he’s a pretty confident and laid-back guy so I am sure that he will be fine. Myself, on the other hand…well…:)
