[QUOTE=32green;4465124]My 15 year old Umpires in the LL in our town. I dont hang around if I drop him off or pick him up because I know I will punch some coach's lights out if they look at him the wrong way on a call.
He pretty much told me he was taught by the league to call a broad strike zone with the younger kids to move the games along, but I guess the superstar parents and coaches never get that memo.
Personally, I've seen some dopey umping from kids his age (and prolly my own kid too, but I wont watch him) but I have no patience for parents that try to brow beat these kids.
My son has reffed youth lacrosse games for 3 years now, he gets paid ridiculous money and loves being on the other side of a flag. :D
[QUOTE=brady's a catcher;4465064]That guy was awesome. I could never decide if he was a super-troll or real whigger Forrest Gump. Then he sent me the first and still only "JI friend" request I've ever gotten. Didn't even know they existed. Still, troll or mentally challenged, I'll always wonder.
