    Nationwide Sports Official Crisis - Dan McGinnis

    What would high school sports be like without officials?  As strange as that sounds, it's already happening.  More and more sports officials are retiring or walking away from officiating.  Why?  Inadequate pay, average age of officials is much higher than you think and physical/verbal abuse from fans and coaches are just a few of the reasons.

    In this episode, I discuss the umpire shortage with Dan McGinnis (Ohio High School. Athletic Association Director of Officiating Development for Baseball).
