Oregon High alum and current Major League Umpire Larry Young returned to his roots in the Rock River Valley yesterday. He was the host of the 9th Annual Larry Young and Friends Golf Outing out at Silver Ridge Golf Course. Young has been a big league umpire for over 22 years now, and you can imagine that the day in and day out squatting takes it toll on the body. Heres what he had to say about his future in the big leagues.
"YOUNG: I'd like to go another 2 or 3 years but my knees aren't agreeing to that. I'm going to look at it at the end of the year, and see how I feel and what they have in store for me, and go from there."
