There are 16 umpires selected from all over the world.
We've been communicating via email the past 6 months. Trying to get to know each other. Some of the emails are directed toward informative stuff and some are just wise cracking stuff....loosens us up and keeps everything lighthearted.
It is truly a diverse group. We are finding that we are an interesting group that come from all walks of life......funny, witty, good looking, well...some of us.... and down right crazy. We all know that we are gonna have a blast from the day we meet next week.
Here is a group of photographs that will be posted in the Little League World Series Souvenir program.
