This is really getting old.Umpires late for games, changing game time to satisfy them.and still cain;t
do a decent job. I saw the strike ih the dirt also. some one needs to step up to the plate and i don;t mean home plate.Management does not seem to be doing a very good job on anything.[dogs in side park,coaches smoking in dug outs, and unruley kids every where.every one has a complaint and these are mine. Also kids having a late game may not get into bed until 11 o/clock on a school night.

Dogs are not allowed and everyone bringing them out are being asked to leave. There is even a sign on the fence stating no pets. There is also a sign sayign no food and drinks , but many choose not to read them. Coaches caught smoking are asked to leave also. there are areas set aside for anyone wishing to destroy their lungs. Unruley kids? So now management has to be the babysitter while you say how much better job being an umpire than the ones out there are? Might try watching your own children and be responsible for the way they act and the way you act win little johnny or susie gets called out.Get mad when you hear foul language on the other side of the field but you saying 4 letter words in front of your little angels it is ok. Umpires do need to be on time and need to be knowledgable about what they are doing. So since you know how to do it all and run the ballpark too..sign your butt up. So you set the example ..you step upto the plate...you put your money where you mouth is. If i was running the ballpark i'd hand you the keys and say good riddence. No way in the world i would try want to put up with the crap they have to. lots of things need to be worked on out there and lots of attitudes need to be worked on too.

If they want me to umpire I sure will. Could not do any worse than the umpire last night. I would be fair I would not pick out which team I like and make sure to help them with calls, or by giving them extra runs. By the way I am not saying all the umpires are bad, but sorry Jake needs to either find something else to do or go back to school. I could also understand if it were just parents complaining but when the other umpire umping the same game is telling him he is wrong must be something to it. Or when the coach of the opposite team tells him that he was wrong the pitcher did not balk. Now take Mr. Allen you could not ask for a better umpire. He is fair, he is always smiling and very friendly. Oh he also shows up on time. Sorry if your Jake or related to Jake but he does not know how to umpire. Like I said I will umpire if they want me to!!!!

Dont take my word for how bad Jake is. Come to the ballfield next Tues. or Thursday on field six and see for yourself. See if you think this umpire is fair and see if you would want him umpiring for your kids. I am not getting smart with you just everyone wants to blame the parents. See what you think. My son has played ball out there for several years now, and this is the first complaint I have made about anyone or anything out there. You seem like you know the ball park very well maybe you could help find some decent umpires. By the way I will call them about umpiring.

I think the only way anything is gonna be done about this umpire is for all the parents to complain to the one over the 11 and 12 year old league.

the young kids will let the older adults make the calls, these high school kids are to young to stand their grounds.

This is exactly why my child will NEVER again play ball in this town. We will drive to Newbern or Yorkville any day. You people all need to realize that this is a FUN sport. 98% of these kids are not playing for the big leagues they are out there having fun. THe parents are the stupid ones that ruin it for everyone. Let them be kids. Who cares if the calls are bad what example are you all setting pitching a fit over not winning. WOW

The umpires I know do umpiring because they love the game. Very few umpire for the pay. If you consider the time spent traveling to and from games and the time it takes to play the game, you'll see that they don't make much per hour.
