CLEARWATER, Fla.–The lone televised game of the weekend is about to begin, as Purdue will take on South Florida and the Bright House Network will broadcast. Interestingly, this game features two female umpires–Perry Barber and Ila Valcareel. The pair also worked yesterday’s Cincinnati-Purdue game, the first time ever that two female umpires have worked the same college baseball game. Bo Carter, a giant in the sports information community who is working this Big East/Big Ten Challenge this weekend, tells me there have been single female umpires in Division II and Division III in the past, but it’s uncertain if a woman has ever worked a Division I game before yesterday.
