Cotton Belt Classic Umpire Clinic

The clinic running this spring will be geared towards HS guys trying to get better. The Clinic in the fall will have a few College Assignors coming to Evaluate and hire new umpires. There will be a AA Umpire and SEC umpire along with a few other College Umpires.

There is also a Facebook page as well... Any questions please ask.

Cotton Belt?

What does this have to do with trains?

Very topically dry joke.

They used to be part of Southern Pacific RR, and I guess they all became Union Pacific.

I grew up in a little town with a big switch yard, and have known quite a few RR's over the years.

For years, I slept more contently hearing a freight track rolling down those tracks with the whistle blowing. You don't hear that clinkity-clack anymore since they've all put in ribbon rail.

Before being assimiliated by the Borg, SP was sold to Denver and Rio Grande Western as a result of directed divestiture as a consequence of the failed merger with Santa Fe. D&RGW chose to retain the SP name instead of its own.

Seems I recall that. Now Santa Fe has merged with Burlington Northern, and I believe they use both names. The only engines I ever notice nowadays are Union Pacific and Santa Fe. About the only cars I see are flat beds with piggy backs trailers, and car parts coming in from Mexico. Then see some cars loaded facing up in the car loaders.

I still see some freight cars. I've always loved to look at all the art from the taggers.
