Read if your a baseball fanatic
This book is about the truth and life of how one man lived as an umpire. Dave Phillips is the umpire in this book and he explains his life as an ump. He shows how he likes to be a professional umpire, but sometimes it can be hell because it is a lot of traveling.The major message is that Dave and all the major league umpires and even his dad are having fun at their job, but it can be hell sometimes. The thing that i like about this book is that he will make a correct call no matter the team or player. He does that because it is his job. I don't like how a lot of umpires get a shot to ump for the professionals because players didn't give them a good umpire rating. If you're a baseball fan, you should defiantly read this book because it shows how umpires make their calls and it gives some respect from players and fans to umpires. I would give this a rating of 3.5 out of 5 because it has a lot of imagery in it, but this book is a little bit out dated for the players he talks about.Was this review helpful?
