Strikeout calls from umpires used to be an art. You remember the old MLB umpires who used to put on a show. Yeah, I'm drawing blanks on umpire names, but there were some great ones. That said, there is a new hero on the loose with a strikeout call that is 90% hardass & 10% showmanship. You know what entertains parents while their kids play in a meaningless Little League game? This guy. Who wants a strikeout? ME! ME! ME! JUMP!
