Jacksonville Umpires Association

Larry Akin

From Larry:

“Many years under my belt but i have always learned something from each game. That is called experience and it is invaluable in weird situations. always seek advice from your fellow umpires for a questionable call during a past game and it will usually give you reflection on doing the right thing. I usually read the current rule book cover to cover highlighting important areas. Believe me it helps, especially if you are lounging at some Caribbean beach for a week.”
