With nearly 20 years’ experience as an umpire for Little League Baseball, one might think Adam Vasser has seen it all. Just this year, however, the Los Altos native witnessed the strangest play of his career.
“It was a Juniors game in Los Altos, and a kid hit the ball and it hit him square in the face and almost knocked him out,” Vasser said. “He was woozy and had to go to urgent care. It left his team with only eight players, and you can’t go below nine, so we had to end the game. It was the last inning, and they had the tying run on third. It was a crazy scenario. In all my years, I’ve never seen anything like that.”
