The Sun Belt Conference has suspended the three umpires from last weekend’s games between Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns and the Texas State Bobcats.

Don Hudson, Bruce Ravan, and Roger Faulks will each be suspended for an upcoming 3-game series.

Sun Belt Conference commissioner Karl Benson released the following statement today regarding the situation.

“The Sun Belt Conference has suspended the three baseball umpires who officiated last weekend’s games between Texas State at UL Lafayette.

“The SBC is committed to ensuring that our game officials – like our coaches and student-athletes – are held to a very high level of performance. 

“In this case and after a thorough review, it is my opinion that the overall performance of these three umpires did not measure up to this expected level of performance.  And as a result, each has been suspended for an upcoming 3-game series.

“The conference will have no further comment regarding this matter.”

For an in-depth look at the controversy from last Saturday’s game, Jay Walker, play-by-play voice of Ragin’ Cajun athletics, wrote a piece earlier this week concerning the umpires, in particular, umpire Don Hudson. Click here to read the column.
