Sure, you'll never make as much money as those high-salary players, but you can make a fair amount as an umpire. It's free and they're even giving out scholarships to really learn.

Ever imagine being one of those umpires at a major league game? It has to be pretty darn nice, most of the time: Sunny days, baseball, and the occasional tussle with a manager.

The minimum salary for a MLB umpire is $150,000; to me, that is great pay. I've given it thought a time or two, of giving it a shot. How about you?  You'd get to travel, (Hey, Cleveland has some pretty nice things, really!) You'd get to make new friends, and you'd get to be a part of hundreds of thousands of people seeing America's game.
