We received this Baseballism video submission from Pete Watson, who tells us the story of attending the Greater St. Louis Association of Umpires convention and how it inadvertently led to his becoming an umpire.
He shares the experience of sitting through the various presentations on rules changes, a celebrity sighting , and finally his swearing in ceremony. Oh yeah, he also tops it all of with a big surprise reveal at the end!
Thanks to Pete for his submission. We hope you enjoy his baseball story.
We would love to hear from you. Send a Tweet to @baseballisms with a quick message, send us an email or visit our Upload page with a video message. We look forward to growing a community of fans interested in the poetry of the game of baseball!
