Following a successful 10-year professional umpiring career, Dave joined our instructor staff in 2015, quickly making an impact with the extensive instructor experience he brought with him.
Highlighting this experience is the five-years spent instructing on the Jim Evans Academy of Professional Umpiring staff, serving as Chief Instructor in 2011. Most important, his ability to teach and adapt professional mechanics nuances to the NCAA game has been invaluable.
In 2017, Dave resumed his on-field career. He was on the the America East conference tournament crew in 2017 and the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) conference tournament crew in 2018. Dave was selected to his first NCAA Division I Regional in 2018.
Dave previously worked in the Appalachian League (2006), Florida Instructional League (2006), South Atlantic League (2007), Carolina League (2008) Arizona Fall League (2008), Eastern League (2009-20011), Dominican Winter League (2012), International League (2011-2015), and MLB Spring Training (2013-2014).
