The Role of the Little League UmpireThe volunteer umpire is as much a part of Little League as the volunteer manager, coach, or concession stand worker. Each of us in Little League must take responsibility for our own actions. However, umpires are appointed by the local league President and approved by the local league board of directors. The umpire is there to ensure safety, sportsmanship, and game control when required. Umpires should always carry the current year rule book. It is better to consult the rules and hold up play long enough to make the correct call rather than have the game protested and possibly replayed.Each year there are opportunities to attend umpire clinics. This year, there are two great opportunities.
- Umpire Clinic Saturday April 4th
- Western Region Outreach Umpire Clinic April 25-26 at the Mt. Sentinel Complex (Dale Clawson Fields)
