Teen ump concerned in brawl invited to MLB sport

DENVER — Hey, blue, nice name!

Major league umpire Chris Guccione invited a teenage ump who was concerned in a sport that resulted in an grownup brawl to attend the Dodgers-Rockies collection finale Sunday at Coors Field.

Guccione and his crew simply needed to point out their assist for 13-year-old Josh Cordova, who discovered himself in the course of a current struggle in Lakewood, Colorado. Authorities mentioned the skirmish at a sport between groups of 7-year-olds started when dad and mom and coaches disagreed with the teenager’s selections. The video of the battle went viral.

“It is an extremely hard job to be an umpire and keep the peace and to make the calls,” mentioned Guccione, who’s from Colorado and in his 20th season as an enormous league ump. “I just want Josh and his family to have a great time at the ballpark.”

The household was introduced in via UMPS CARE Charities, the official philanthropy of MLB umpires.

“The support has been amazing,” mentioned Jennifer Carriera, Josh’s mom. “We are really looking forward to this experience.”
