GET TO KNOW AN UMPIRE...
We may have started because of the game, but we stay for the people.
This is your chance to get to know an umpire better. It could be a someone you worked with last weekend, someone from a different part of the province or perhaps the other side of our country or even another country all together.

Here is the newest "Get To Know An Umpire" - while she is currently calling Alberta home (we are assuming reluctantly), she is BC born and trained, Tonya Ribalkin Zanon, who despite attending her first umpire clinic as punishment, has shown that a goal at 14 can become a reality through hard work and dedication.
PS: Thanks to Deadspin for the inspiration for this series...which is a little nicer than theirs.
