MLB ump Dale Scott retires rather than risk more concussions

Rather than risk yet another concussion, Scott has decided to retire at 58.

“I’m done,” he told the Associated Press.

The veteran crew chief missed nearly the entire 2017 season after a foul ball off the bat of Baltimore slugger Mark Trumbo in Toronto on April 14 caught him hard in the mask, causing Scott’s second concussion in nine months and fourth in five years.
