Lance Schoenwald was a 2004 graduate of the Harry Wendelstedt School for Umpires and began a career in professional baseball. But he didn’t stop there. He is now working to help others reach those professional ranks with the Pro Umpire Camp in Shreveport, LA.
We spoke with Lance about his umpiring career, what is important for umpires at the next level as well as finding ways to help those umpires around you.
Lance’s camp has a lengthy list of alums in Independent Baseball, Minor League Baseball as well as high levels of College Baseball. Lance’s focus is on preparing umpires for the next level of umpiring and help with placement in six different leagues.
Editors Note: I apologize for the sound quality of this episode and I managed to cut off the first 3 minutes of the interview. Lance, I’ll happily have you back on the podcast at a later date to do more of our talk at a higher quality level!
