CLEVELAND — An native of Columbus and Ohio State Unversity graduate will be part of the umpiring crew at Tuesday night's Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
Tim Timmons is back home in the Buckeye State to work as the third base umpire. The 20-year veteran of the majors will be working his second Mid-Summer Classic and is fresh off of serving on the umpiring crew at last year's World Series.
"I've never worked a day in my life," Timmons told Bud Shaw and yours truly at PLAY BALL Park on Monday. "It's one heck of a way to provide for your family."
Timmons is also proud to represent UMPS CARE, a charity that provides 'Major League' support to at-risk and critically ill children, children adopted late in life and military families. This includes providing tickets and a VIP experience to MLB games, scholarships, and bringing a Build-A-Bear Workshop experience right to hospital rooms.
