You're out!

Dan Loeterman won't say how many times Larry Abend punched him out, but the former Little Leaguer gets the final word Sunday in Globe West when he profiles the Newton South umpire.

Dan says Larry is reputed to be the loudest ump in the league, which plays out of Richardson Field. He's been behind the plate for 29 years, making him by far the oldest ump there.

In that time he has tossed five people, including a mother. The count would be much higher, but no one dares mess with Larry.
