Default First game

Just called my first game behind the plate tonight -actually, my first as an umpire. I'm hooked. I'll stick with the 4-5 volunteer games for my boy's leagues for now. Once my schedule slows down, I'm going all in.

It's all fun and games, until some of the parents forget it's all fun and games.

Have fun and let them play the game.
