The 2017 Hall of Fame event is just around the corner so I wanted to make sure the umpires all knew about the event and ask that they order their tickets as soon as possible. I ran into several umpires today at VGSA that has not heard about this event yet. I know Mike has forwarded emails but it doesn’t seem like people are reading them. Can you also post this on the EFOPA website or send out a text about it to all the umpires?  Ticket sales have been low so far so I really want to make sure we get the word out so Scott and Kim will feel supported.
 
Here are the details:
