RIP Dutch Rennert

Over the years, I have seen and played with a number of umpires who were so timid with their calls, you could never be sure what the count was on the batter.  This was not the case when Laurence “Dutch” Rennert was behind the plate.

Rennert passed away this past Sunday, June 17th at the age of 88.

Rest in peace.

    Do you recall who the umpire was- a NL umpire who had the delayed strike call? I am drawing a blank right now…

    Dutch was great, back when umpires had some flair instead of being automatons or testy jerks like Cowboy Joe West. Rest in piece, and ring ’em up in Heaven.
