A native Floridian, Jim coached baseball, basketball, and track at the high school he taught at. When Jim moved to Tampa he knew he wanted to remain involved with baseball but was also concerned about time with his family. So, he decided to become an umpire. Jim has been with WCUA since 2010 and during that time he's won the associations "Most Improved" award and has been selected for plate assignments in district playoffs in each of the last 2 seasons. Jim's goals include working regionals and to own a plate jacket as awesome as Steve Durrance’s!
