Billy Haze was inches away from a dream and then walked away. Only to have the pull of baseball bring him back into the game. Billy was an aspiring AAA Minor League Umpire, but didn’t get the MLB call up. After some time off, he returned to the game and is now at the top of the D-I NCAA baseball umpires profession as well as helping others take their first steps in umpiring with the Black and Blue Umpire Academy.
Billy Haze and Michael Bilinci join us from the Black and Blue Umpire Camp to talk on Episode 15 about daily life as an NCAA umpire, who should attend the BBUC camps and the intangibles assigners look for when trying to find folks for the next level.
The Black & Blue Umpire Camps can be found on YouTube, Facebook as well as their website.
A cool video they show at the start of camp
