FATHER, MOTHER, AND SON UMPIRE TOGETHER DISTRICT 3-A SOFTBALL TITLE GAME IN TN
Sandy, Richard and Justan Spurling officiated the District 3‑A softball championship game Thursday night, becoming the first three‑member family to call a game.
Meet Sandy, Richard and Justan Spurling. A family that lives for moments together at the ballpark.
“In our house in the afternoons, not much TV goes on, it’s always discussions about this game and that game.” Sandy Spurling said.
Richard Spurling started umpiring high school games in 1982.
“When I got out of the military, I just needed something to do.” Richard Spurling said. “People were needing umpires and I happened to know the assigner at the time. He asked me to umpire and I said, ‘Sure, let’s try it and see.”
