Some of FBL's spots, including "Umpire," tell a story from a person's youth, several decades ago. For these spots, the art department is charged with getting clothing (such as baseball uniforms) that matches that period in history. Some of these spots also necessitate period cars and trucks. Fortunately, most towns have a vintage car club or vehicles that are specifically used for movies. The art department makes contact with these resources to locate just the right vintage car that fits the spot.


MUSIC: Sometimes it’s the hardest thing to choose…
VOICEOVER: My father was a great hitter, but he knew that life was about more than just one game.
MUSIC: Because every choice that you made is born somewhere in between who you are today and who you’d like to be. And no matter that decision there will be one more coming through—the easy way out or the right thing to do.
VOICEOVER: So when that umpire made a bad call and ended the game for dad and then needed help with his car, my father made the right call.
ANNCR/SUPER: Helping others, the right choice. Pass it On… A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.

Right Choices. Pass It On!

Love your enemies, do the right thing even when you don't want to. Look out for others, even when they have mistreated you, and forgive. Move forward.

Umpires can make bad calls! I know because I umpired many games! It's nice to have someone on your side-to help you out:)
