Steve Gordon has been umpiring slow pitch softball for 32 years in all levels of men’s and women’s divisions of play.  Steve got his start working for the Eggleston Park Umpire Association, and later officiated for Blue Chip Umpires, then ASA and USA Softball.   He was a workhorse for the annual Amateur Softball Association’s Metro Tournament for 28 years, calling numerous championship games.  He was a fixture in the championship games of the Major Divisions, where his distinctive strike call behind home plate became his trademark. Rated as one of the top 20 umpires in the nation by ASA/USA Softball, Steve has worked 23 National Tournaments at all levels of play.  He was selected to work three Super Major, six Men’s A, and three Armed Forces Nationals. He attended six National Umpire Clinics from 2006-2012, including two Advanced Schools.  He also served locally as an Umpire-In-Chief and instructor.

Steve has consistently displayed a professional attitude and appearance on and off the field, always beginning each assignment in a well-kept uniform and polished shoes.  Heis known for his modesty, business-like approach to the game and work ethic.  His style is to never call attention to himself, yet always to ensure that each of his games is kept under control and receives his best effort.  Steve credits his ability to work at the highest level in both his National and International assignments to the experiences he has gained while working in his hometown with all the great players and the outstanding level of competition in Greater Cincinnati.  He believes that the best softball in the country is played right here in the tri-state.
