I'm getting close myself. For me it's the combination of the hassle of coming back after a non-baseball related injury & not enjoying umpiring as much as the past. I may decide to take this year...

I agree. Had trouble with the outside corner the 1st few innings, then finally seemed to relax & dial in. Trying too hard can mess you up as bad as lack of concentration.
