An umpire leaves home to umpire Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning to umpire approx 12 games at $25-$35 dollars per game.
Games times average 2.5 hours of time including pre and post games prep and waiting for the next game.
2.5 X 12 games = 30 hours
12 games X $25 = $300 for 30 hours= $10 per hour
12 games X $35 = $420 for 30 hours =$14 per hour
Now you take those earning and DEDUCT travel & housing costs...
And the best part of what the umpires get to enjoy is..a bunch of players more often then not crying and yelling all sorts of insults towards them.
