When it came to scheduling baseball umpires and making sure every game was staffed even in the face of last-minute or emergency cancellations by the men in blue, nobody did it better than Jack Kramp.Kramp's behind-the-scenes dedication to making the Anne Arundel Baseball Umpires Association the state's most reliable and professional group were unmatched.Unfortunately because of health reasons, Kramp had to resign this spring as scheduler and umpire in chief of the local association. His extraordinary ability to handle the pressures of what can be a thankless job will be sorely missed.

We all know how important youth coaches are to kids trying to learn how to play the great game of baseball.But have you ever thought how important the men in blue, who run the games, are to young baseball players?Oh sure, it goes without saying that you can't play the games without umpires, and thus, their presence is imperative.Their importance goes beyond that, and the more I watch and coach youth baseball and that played on the high school level, the more I'm convinced theyare just as important as the coaches.

Don't look now, but baseball is just around the corner, and the Anne Arundel Baseball Umpires Association is getting ready to celebrate its 20th anniversary.The men in blue, who often don't get the credit they deserve, work county public high school games (Archbishop Spalding, Severn and St. Mary's are the only county schools not using the group), and area summer leagues.They're dependable, always dressed properly, professional, and more than fair with their prices (they remain the area's most inexpensive)

Baseball strike? Who cares?I don't because amateur baseball on the high school and summer levels is more genuine and in the spirit of what the game was meant to be.A three-week journey (vacation) to youth baseball tournaments in Cleveland, Altoona (Pa.), Chicago and Marietta East-Cobb (Ga.) more than satisfied my appetite for the real game -- amateur baseball, which still and always will be a boys game.Let me share a few things I learned and observed this summer. I start with something I knew and many local coaches knew all along and maybe we take for granted.

Sometimes it just doesn't pay to run a high-quality program. It can even cost you when you are dangling a freebie.Let's take a trip around the bases on this question: Is it because Anne Arundel County has the best overall baseball program -- from the umpires to the coaches to the players to the facilities -- that it can't get a break from the State Baseball Committee even when it is offered a break?Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state baseball chairman Earl Hersh of Carroll County will not allow two additional umpires in regional playoff games, even though two umpires from the Anne Arundel Umpires Association would work for free.
