I am scheduled to umpire tonight, it’s a 9 inning game in SW Calgary, about 25 minutes from my place.
It was raining pretty well all night and into this morning, stopped somewhere around noon.
I was sort of hoping that the game would be rained out so I could relax tonight, do some laundry, whatever.
I called the umpire hotline number – there are 3 games scheduled in Calgary tonight. Two of the three are cancelled, mine isn’t. Figures…
I just hope that I don’t drive all the way there and then discover that the diamond isn’t playable.
It’s cold, but at least I have an umpire jacket now. Presuming that the diamond and field aren’t too wet, it should be a good night for ball.
Play Ball !!!
