Happy 80th Birthday Bill Meyer Image
Longtime Westporter Bill Meyer (shown with wife, Carolyn) got an 80th birthday surprise today at the girls softball game he was umpiring—a birthday cake. Meyer has been involved in Westport Little League, Y’s Men, Sunrise Rotary, the Representative Town Meeting (RTM), and myriad other organizations and causes during his tenure in Westport. The Parks and Recreation Commission later honored him at its meeting and Westport First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff (next to Meyer in baseball cap) read a proclamation marking his birthday.  (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Lynn U. Miller for

Congrats Bill.

There was one time a year back, he was umping my daughter’s game.  He calls runners ducks. So he said, “we have 2 ducks on the pond.”  A couple of moments later two actual ducks landed on the field. Bill always has a big smile. It was huge at that moment.

Bill is also the only ump to say sorry to a girl he calls out on strikes.

Keep on umping.

Happy Birthday Bill.  It was a pleasure working and chatting with you at the Westport Community Theatre this past month.
