Mike DiMuro ’90 might be the most influential person you’ve never heard of. That said, his decisions affect thousands, and each is done in public. Welcome to the world of a Major League Baseball umpire.
Since June 1999, DiMuro has been living his dream job, a choice that was heavily influenced by his late father, Lou, an American League umpire from 1963-82. “I grew up around it so, for me, my heroes were the umpires,” said DiMuro during a recent visit to campus. “I love the anonymity. You go out, work hard and do a good job.”
