Intro - Left Field Umpire Podcast & Q's for Bob Davidson

Hi UEFL'ers. Over the past few days, we have been fortunate to be graced in the comments by the presence of former big leaguer Bob Davidson, a World Series umpire who retired from professional baseball in 2016 after 30 years, 3911 regular season games, and 166 major league ejections following not one, but two journeys through the minor leagues to reach the show.

Bob Davidson is here!
On this Independence Day, we celebrate the persistence and dedication of former MLB #61 to his craft.

Now, then, is as good a time as any to announce the impending debut of our new podcast, The Plate Meeting, A Left Field Umpire Podcast, where we talk umpiring with umpires, and discuss officiating related issues, including analysis or other conversation pertaining to plays, ejections, rules, and more.

As the Close Call Sports & Umpire Ejection Fantasy League header states, this website's purpose is to objectively track and analyze controversial calls, ejections, replay reviews, and related issues.

Our inaugural guest for the show will be Bob Davidson, who, from his years on the field, has demonstrated a no holds barred approach to umpiring, and that's how the show will go, too.

Commissioner Tmac has been working overtime in this regard, and Bob has graciously agreed to delight us with stories and to discuss a wide variety of topics that may pop up on the show. Put simply, we're going to talk umpiring with an umpire.

So we need your help.
