Umpires Might Work Entire Homestands To Reduce Travel 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 30, 2020 12:57 pm

Major League Baseball is working on a plan that would reduce travel for umpires during the condensed 2020 season.

According to sources, it\'s possible umpires could drive from city to city, work entire homestands and even stay at team hotels.

Usually, a crew works a series then moves on, making sure to rotate around the league so as to not have grudges based on the same teams seeing the same umpires all the time.

A crew of three umpires will report to each summer league camp on July 10.
