It’s said that umpiring is the only profession in which you’re expected to start out perfect and improve from there. Baseball umpires hardly lead a charmed life. Their every decision is spot-checked and often reviled by thousands of hostile fans; plus, travel schedules are brutal and pay is meager unless you’re in the majors. New York Times reporter Bruce Weber spent three years going to umpire school and living the life of the men (and a handful of women) in blue. He wrote about it in his new book, “As They See ‘Em: A Fan’s Travels in the Land of Umpires.” We’ll hear Weber’s journey, plus talk to the general managers of the Cleveland Indians and Lake Erie Crushers Tuesday morning at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.
