Had an excellent career as an umpire on the local sandlots and collegiate level from 1956 through 1984. Began umpiring in the youth city and Cuyahoga Falls leagues in ’56; began working the high schools in 1960 and moved into the college and AA ranks in 1963. Bill’s ability to control the game is legendary, yet he firmly believed the game was for the players and he got great satisfaction out of doing his chosen work.
