Young Umpires working way up through Northwoods League

The long road trips and intense schedule in the Northwoods League doesn’t just drain the players as the umpires have an intense schedule. This season the league has allowed  16 up and coming umpires to work their slate of games. It is a long road as the umpires have a tough schedule of 76 games in 81 days, including the playoffs.
