Winter Again

6 inches of snow where I live today in SE Minnesota--1.5 feet two hours west of here. I am sure that will kill ball for the rest of the week. My wallet is pretty thin with 19 cancellations so far this year.

Two weeks left in the regular season and I have worked a total of six dates outside this year.

Please let's get some spring!!!

My game for today was postponed yesterday...today I got a call at Noon and it's back on for today as originally scheduled. It is softball so the balls should be easy to find in the snow

I completely missed the snow in Minneapolis. Less than 10 miles away in Egan, however, they had about 3 inches of snow.

Actually managed to get a doubleheader in this afternoon.

Whatever our assigners are getting paid, it's not enough this spring... according to my assigner's last mass email, he's been getting about 100-120 postponements/reschedules/cancellations every day for the last couple of weeks.

I assign for my association for free so I am really earning my salary this year.

Are you Mark Cuban or what?


Nobody assigns for free. What's the catch?

I assign for free, with a catch. The money that most assignors charge was used to give the umpires a bigger raise.

I moved in August from suburban Chicago to suburban Houston. I'm glad I did. From last year's exceedingly warm and dry spring in Chicago to this year's 2nd coldest and wettest in Chicago history, I wouldn't have gotten in many games up there. Many of my friends up there were telling me that as of mid-April, they had worked only a "handful" of games. One guy hadn't even worked a single conference game (at any division) by April 20th because of all the rain (and snow and ice and...).

I started my season here January 26th and have yet to be rained out or canceled due to weather.
