MLB umpire Dale Scott retires rather than risk more concussions

One too many foul balls for one blue
Major League Baseball umpire Dale Scott prepares to return to action after being injured in the second inning of a 2013 game between the Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays in Seattle. Rather than risk yet another concussion, Scott has decided to retire at 58.
Dale Scott is attended to on the field in the eighth inning after he was hit by a foul tip during a 2017 game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles in Toronto. The veteran crew chief missed nearly the entire 2017 season with his second concussion in nine months and fourth in five years.
