  • Interesting article about Ty and wish him the best. I too have been involved in baseball, racquetball, and tennis. Now I prefer to umpire and always look for specials wherever I can to look professional with the umpire organization I am with. He sort of reminds me of some things I have done but he seems to be more advanced. My best to him again.
