IRONTON, OH (WOWK) - In Ironton, Ohio three umpires are about to head all over the world for three different opportunities of a lifetime, but that's not why they go to the field every day of every summer.
They do it for the kids, Little League Umpires, Coaches and workers are all volunteers. Each umpire says it's worth every second and every penny for the kids to play ball.
"You just do it because you love the sport, you love the kids. If you want to make money you move up to High School or College. This is not where you make money, this is where you make friends and lifelong memories," Scott Russell, Little League Umpire.
