I called games this past weekend in a tournament in Northern Illinois. Yes, it was hot, between 96 and 98 degrees each day. Myself and 5 other umps wound up each calling 16 games over three days, with 6 games in a row on Sunday. We all agreed that this was better than calling one game in 35 degree weather early in the high school season. The major problem that we had was the infields were crushed limestone that reflected the heat back up. It had to be at least 10 degrees warmer in the infield compared to the outfield.
