Fellow umpires, we are asking you to help a worthy cause. Waukegan High School Head Baseball Coach, Dan Green’s son Jack was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in November 2010. Due to where his tumor was located he still needs therapy to relearn how to walk again which is not covered by insurance. Hearing aids because of the use of chemo, and human growth hormone because of stunted growth from radiation all not covered by insurance. Please help this worthy cause by clicking on the following link to make a contribution: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/super-jack/227393.
The UMPS Board of Directors with its deepest sympathy announce the passing of Kurt Pingel. Kurt was a long time member and Assignment Chairman for UMPS. He helped shape a lot of our umpiring careers and gave many of us opportunities to advance and succeed that we might have not had without him. The umpiring community in the Northwest Suburbs lost a legend (6/4/14). Kurt you will be missed and will definitely not be forgotten…take care my friend!
