UMPIRE CLINIC: Hernando-Sumter Umpires Association is offering its third annual umpire clinic at 1 p.m. Sunday at Ridge Manor Sports Complex as a way to train new umpires for youth, adult and even AAU league baseball and softball games.

It will be a three-hour course and umpires can make anywhere from $30 to $50 per game, depending on the age level. The clinic is open to men and women, ages 16 and up, and costs $15.

The clinic will focus on topics including rules of the game, basic umpire signals, proper uses of equipment, selling your call, positioning on the field, proper plate-zone coverage and even detailed training on nonroutine situations (read, arguments).

  1. Blake Snell steps up, but Rays lose to Orioles anyway (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell stepped up when he had to Monday and delivered an impressive career-high seven-plus innings for the Rays. That it wasn't enough in what ended up a 5-0 loss to the Orioles that was their season-high fifth straight is symptomatic of the mess they are in right now.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — working a season-high seven plus innings. And it wasn't only that he got deep into the game, but how he did so, using his fastball to pound the strike zone.

  5. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC


    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
