Same here in MA. Coaches have sent out emails asking if parents want to umpire. $60 a game.

They also may not want to Ump while wearing a Covid mask. 

Yeah, unless they use the correct hand signals, you might not understand "ball, strike, safe, or out"?

They have a handheld thing that peeped instead of a whistle. Hard to get used to.

I was a certified HS basketball ref for over two decades.   Unless you're a professional or Division 1 collegiate ref, me and my regular partners don't do this for the money - it's an avocation.   So not sure where unemployment fits in.

I mean, what does it take to be a ump in baseball uhmn?

Well, good eyesight helps. And a stable mental health state...something you lack.

Sure, nice excuse.....like you did NOT play any sport during your high school and college time shithead.

Love how people like  you  who do not volunteer for crap, complain about other people not volunteering to take care of their  spawn.
