Local umpires Dale Anzo and Scott Letendre umpired a series of baseball games between the Chico Heat and Yuma Scorpions last week. The Scorps featured former Oakland Athletics players Jose Conseco and Tony Phillips. You may notice that Philips looks less than thrilled with Anzo in the photo above.
According to Anzo, the conversation went something like this:
Phillips: that was outside.
Anzo: caught the corner.
Phillips: no, that ball was outside.
Anzo: it caught the corner. Get back in the box.
So Anzo, did you get his autograph? (Phillips was the 2nd baseman on the As’ 1989 world championship team.
The photo below is Anzo behind the plate and Conseco at the plate.
The last photo is Anzo (l) and Letendre (r) prior to the start of the game on Friday, August 5, 2011.
