Ump Hustle ..."For the Love of the Game".. A Romantic Comedy in the Making

I may be  be tough on umps at times

but I also show love. Speaking of Love today I profile one of NYC best hustling umpires 
Little Lootch.

When Little Lootch wasn't on the run hustling after a play

Back to the Right Spot
In between the action Little Lootch was kind to enough to give me an in game interview to give us insight into his focus

After that Little Lootch was all over the filed
Following Home Plate Ump with his clicker - Professional

In between innings Little Lootch granted me a special interview where he touched upon a variety of important umpire, life, charity and career subjects:


I could see Little Lootch becoming a Romantic comedy in a reboot of the Love of the Game move. This time he falls in love with a female player in a Co-Ed game he's umping. Worst scripts have been written.

More importantly, good ump, good guy, a pleasure to have working in Inwood.


  1. He needs to school Charlie .

  2. Rick, this is the same guy that had a team playing in a rain storm because he didn't want to have to continue the game on another day while only being paid for that game once.

    Nice job Rick.


  3. There are various guidelines as well as effects which might be forced through a football game. Most Football penalties produce a damage or maybe get regarding yardage according to whether or not the punishment is usually about the crime and the defense. A degree on the punishment decides the amount of yards. Many effects usually are 5 or maybe 10 metres, however some particular nasty effects end in 15 yards. As well, successfully pass disturbance may lead to a problem which matches the actual entire meant pass. The c's this would not make the actual punishment provides the legal right to downfall the actual penalty. We can't checklist or maybe depth each possible football infraction,nonetheless below are among the extra common football penalties.
