LOD Podcast, Episode 44: Behind the Plate with Dave Borges

Sometimes you seek out a career and sometimes a career seeks out you.  In the case of Dave Borges, becoming a professional umpire was not something he was planning.  Borges first began officiating when his kid’s Little League was looking for volunteer umpires.  A little over a decade later, he finds himself traveling and assigning softball umpires all over the country.

Dave Borges is the Umpire in Chief for Women’s Professional Fastpitch, USA Elite/USSA and National Umpire in Chief for the South region.  He describes his professional commitments as being 365 days a year.  We also spoke with Dave about the pressure that officials are under and what can be done to encourage more people to enter the field.
