Has anyone noticed that NYC umpire Mark
and Mr. Clean
resemble one another. In fact for some unknown reason Mark has a Mr. Clean tough guy image as he often umpires modified games without a mask. Tough but not safe.
I like and respect Mark. Many players actually prefer when Mark umpires b/c he hasn't been around as long and doesn't interject himself into the game.
Stay Clean Mark as you are on the road to becoming a good umpire. Just start wearing a mask.
