Gift ideas for the umpire in your life

♪ Goodbye my Coney Island Baby ♫ - Eileen Blass-USA TODAY

In the early days of baseball, umpires wore top hats and tails. Most umpires were unemployed show people who took work where they could find it — and what better place for an actor or singer than in front of a large, captive audience? Every game was an audition! Who knows, there might be a talent scout in the stands! Put your best foot forward!

As the business of baseball evolved and the professional leagues stopped hiring castoffs from vaudeville, the umpire's apparel became less formal and more functional. But that doesn't mean you, or the aspiring umpire you love, shouldn't dress for the part! Ump-attire.com has everything you need to look like a big boss man on a baseball field!

John Hirschbeck was fined $1000 for umpiring a 1988 Twins-Tigers game while wearing a civilian belt. Don't let that happen to you! Buy TWO official umpire belts and keep one in your glove compartment for umpiring emergencies! (Available up to size 60".)

The only umpire shoe you'll ever need! Dura-coat finish is resistant to dirt and tobacco spit, and the rubber spikes will keep you grounded when you're ringing up a spoiled millionaire All-Star! Show everyone what a big man you are with official umpire footgear!
