It was brutally hot in southern Ontario too. I had the misfortune of working the plate in a game that began at 11:45 a.m. on Saturday. I brought a canteen of water that I consumed before the game. Luckily it was a fast-moving game. I got words of encouragement from both teams' coaches. Comments like, "Hang in there, Blue! Only two more innings left!" I wondered too how umpires in Georgia, Louisiana, etc. could cope with these conditions on a regular basis. You guys must be superhuman.
