Talking to the umpire is one of the perks of playing first base in baseball. So, just another day taking the field for Shawn Smith turned into something more impactful in the fall of 2020.
“I was playing for Run and Gun Baseball out of Seymour and I was talking with the first base umpire,” Smith said. “It turns out he was the head coach at Albertus Magnus. We got to talking and he ended up giving me his card. We emailed back and forth. I went to visit and liked the school.”
