Baseball Umpire Describes Life on the Road


On this West Virginia Morning, we continue our West Virginia baseball series. We’ll meet a Pocahontas County man who became a baseball umpire for 38 years. He’s retired now and lives in his hometown of Elkins. Roxy Todd met up with Virgil Broughton to find out what it takes to make a good umpire.

Also on today’s show, a recent federal report lists dozens of major U.S. airports vulnerable to storm surges and flooding from sea level rise. StateImpact Pennsylvania’s Susan Phillips reports on how climate change could impact your flight and how Philadelphia International airport is adapting.
