The Best Seat in the House
But You Have to Stand!!

 As the saying goes, “It’s the best seat in the house, but you have to stand”, and stand he did for close to 20 years. From eight years in the minor leagues, to winter ball in the Dominican Republic, to his tenure umpiring in the National League – this rare insight from an umpire’s view leaves audiences with a new perspective on the game they love. Celebrity sports speaker, Dave Pallone umpired the game with some of the greats – including Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Nolan Ryan, Steve Carlton, Willie Stargell, Barry Bonds, Mike Schmidt, Lou Brock and others. He has a story about them all! However, his famous altercation with Pete Rose gives you a look into the kind of stories Dave can tell. In his sports speaking presentation he’ll give you the inside scoop of what really happened that day, and the days that followed.
