Author Series: Dale Scott

Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 2:00pm

Join us at 2 pm on Tuesday, May 17, in the Bullpen Theater for a special edition of our Author Series. Longtime major league umpire Dale Scott, will discuss his new book, The Umpire Is Out: Calling the Game and Living My True Self.

The only umpire in the history of professional baseball to come out as gay during his career, Scott umpired in the major leagues and minor leagues for 40 years. He’ll discuss the highlights of his career, along with the obstacles he faced along the way.

As legendary broadcaster Bob Costas says, “Dale’s personal story differs dramatically from those of his umpiring colleagues. And yet, what also shines through is what he and so many of us have in common: an abiding love of baseball and an appreciation for what the game has meant to our lives. This is a textured story, both entertaining and meaningful.”

This event will take place in person in the Hall of Fame's Bullpen Theater and virtually.

Virtual participants may join us live on the Hall of Fame's Facebook page.
