Sunday at Lindsey Park, five retired umpires were inducted into the USA/ASA hall of honor, Van Jordan, Don "Doc" Jones, Henry Asberry, Allen Steel and Eric Kunzman. Between them they have 129 years of service umpiring national and state softball tournaments. Their enshrinement brought up stories of from over the years, not unlike ball players who've been around the game for a long time. All men thanked their loved ones, because more often than not they would be on the road away from their families. At the event held at field five, sweltering weather just like it was when the umped, the joy and cherished moments were worth every step of the journey.
