To hold a Dixie girls softball tournment, you would think the league would make sure you had certified umps and not just a good ole boy or girl to ump. They should be dress as umpires and carry their umpire card on them to be certified I was there this weekend and never say a ump with a Dixie girl ump patch on or dressed like one?But i guess this is dyersburg.

"never say a ump". So I am guessing that your unhappiness is not necessarily with the umps, but with your team that did not win. Instead of complaining why don't you get certified and offer your help. It is easy to sit in the stands and whine; tougher to be part of the work.

Many umoires take a reduced fee for these tournaments and some even donate it back or charge nothing at all...been there/done that. I agree; get certified yourself!!

If you are going to ump a tournent game, you need to be dresses as a ump. this person on the big field has been there over 10 years and still wears the same style clothes as when i was coaching a local team and wont call him by his name but he is a sorry ass and should at least get a eye test if he is certifierd. He is either dumb or dont know the rules or blind, take your pick?

Let's see? Since "dumb" actually refers to a person who can not speak, how does this umpire call balls/strikes/out/safe? Nitpicking I know.

Just curious. How does one "dresses as a ump at a tournent game"? Maybe an "eye test" is in order for guest. The tournament is over; get over your team's loss. Maybe they will do better next year.

My goodness. Seems as if guest is getting upset. Maybe after passing your "eye test" you should have purchased a dictionary. You certainly need one. By the way, all legitimate tournaments (notice the correct spelling - not "tourment") charge for admittance to all games. I think the visitors were fine; you seem to be the only one who can't face your losses.

Now that we know you are capable of seeing, please register with DYS and become a highly proficient umpire. if not, just TFU!

Sounds to me like a serious case of your team lost. The umpires were qualified and certified, was every call perfect, no, but name me one game of any kind where the officiating is perfect. The officials looked and acted professional. I attended all 5 nights of the tournament and you only had to pay for 1 ticket each day, if you left and came back all you had to do was show the ticket to re-enter. Just so you know, Dixie governs the event, not Dyersburg, so stop whining and next year just stay home. As for playing Cal Ripken softball in Newbern, it's a joke, and the guy over it is disgusting. No comparison.

Well the first thing you said was wrong for they charged $5.00 for the green ticket for the day games and when you came back that night it was $5.00 again with a red tickets.Next night it was the same, another $5.00.We were out there to watch some softball We like a well played game but when you get some dummy out here trying to ump and not being in umpire uniforms and making the called he did to make this certain team to lose.I have known him umpiring for over 30 years and he still cant see or give the calls to who he wants to.As far as spelling, thought i had m y spelling checker on.

I have seen a lot of parents ruin their kids. Chill out and enjoy your kids playing. It ain't the end of the world if your kid isn't glorified. Let em play and quit brainwashing them to fulfill your dreams.

Once again: get certified and offer to help ump or get on the list of certified umps. Then say yes when you are called on to work/help. When you call a less than perfect game, man up...

I went to times one time at 4:00pm and the next night 5:00pm. I left both nights and came back a little later and did not have to pay for another ticket. But had to show I had already paid. So not sure why you had to pay again.
