The umpire community lost one of our favorite brothers on May 1st, when Mitch Ball of Lethbridge Alberta lost his life to Covid19 one day before his 48th birthday.
Mitch was a beloved figure in the umpire fraternity. He was also one of Canada’s top umpires on the field. He worked 7 National championships serving as the Gold Medal plate umpire for 3 of them. He supervised at 3 Nationals and umpired at 3 International Championships, most recently at the 2015 PanAm Games in Toronto.
