Umpires


Program Objectives -- To train young boys and girls in umpiring baseball or softball games. They will gain confidence in themselves and take on quite a bit of responsibility.

Eligibility - Umpires must be at least 13 years old. New umpires must attend 2 of 3 clinics that are offered in early April. Returning umpires need to attend one of the three clinics.

Costs -- There are no fees for this program.
 
Payments - Umpires get paid $20 for softball and $15 for baseball games.  Payments are made before the start of the game being worked.

Time Commitment - Games are every day of the week. Umpires work only the days that fit their personal schedule.

Locations - Baseball games are at Walsh or Jane Lownes. Softball games are at ETR, Scenic or New Netherwood fields.

Tentative Calendar - The season will begin mid-April and run through the end of June. Weeknight games begin at 5:45 PM (baseball) or 6:15 PM (softball). The weekend games can start as early as 9:00 AM and run until as late at 6:00 PM.

Equipment - All umpires will be provided with a counter. The mask and chest protectors are left at the baseball fields. Umpires who do the softball games will also receive their own mask.

Miscellaneous Information -- Scheduling is done on Sunday evenings for the games Monday through Sunday. Most communication is done via email. New umpires will begin by calling the bases for the baseball games and will eventually be behind the plate by the end of the season. Typically the senior umpires do the softball games.
