Tohoku first: a high school ump works a game

by on Jul.18, 2010 @ 5:02 pm, under High School

For the first time in Tohoku history, a high school umpire worked a high school baseball game.

This past Saturday (as in yesterday), Morioka Dai-san High School's third year student Shun Endo (遠藤駿 sp?) worked as a second base ump in a high school baseball game between Hanamaki Nogyo and Ohasama High School.  Up until this particular game, Endo had worked as an ump in 184 soft baseball games (elementary school, junior high school, high school, and university games).

Seems his dream is to become a pro baseball ump.
