Hey, Blue!


Jacob got trained up and has started umpiring baseball games. Work has been slow so he's done some free games for the youth recreational league here in Sherwood. He has his first real (paid!) gig next Wednesday. The training was fairly limited - read the national high school rules book and attend a single training day, but his years of playing have given him a solid grounding in the rules.


I can't think of a better job for a young man like Jacob - it requires leadership, technical proficiency, physical fitness, and respect for both youth and adults. Oh, and standing tall in the midst of abrasive conflict!
