On October 1st, Vincent Stio made his umpiring debut as a member of the Silbo officiating community. He umpired a youth baseball game in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina with his dad, Vinny Stio.
Vincent Stio is a 12-year old Raleigh, NC native with passion for umpiring. He fell in love with umpiring while attending Carolina Mudcats games with his family.
Stio is a bit of a celebrity in the umpiring world. He even has his own baseball card. In 2018 he was featured on the CBS evening news. Next he was featured in an interview with ESPN. Later that year, Stio was a guest on the Ellen show where tWitch surprised him with tickets to Game 3 of the 2018 World Series.
Silbo is excited to have Stio as a member of our officiating community. We look forward to having him umpire many more games as he advances in his umpiring career.
