The fellow umpires and directors that know Jim Woods, say his main quality is his flamboyant personality.  Jim became a NSA umpire in 1982 working mostly slow pitch and gradually began doing fast pitch.  Jim has an outstanding knowledge of the NSA rules, attention to mechanics and positioning and is envied by many of his fellow umpires.  Jim shares his knowledge with fellow umpires and is always running a clinic to ensure every umpire becomes the best they can be.

Jim has umpired at almost every level in NSA from slow pitch to fast pitch, and when an UIC sees Jim Woods’ name on the list of those working an event, they know he will set the standards for others to follow.  Jim Woods’ off-field demeanor is admired by all and it is recognized by everyone.  These are just a few of Jim’s abilities that justify why he is being inducted into the NSA Hall of Fame.

Jim and his wife Linda have 5 children Beahta, Collette, Alisson, Ronald, and Mellissa.

On October 30, 2018, Jim Woods was inducted into the NSA Sports Hall of Fame in the Umpire Category.
