How are umpires selected to work a game?

The League Umpire in Chief who works with umpires to determine availability, and then will contact each umpire once the division schedules have been established to determine if the umpire would like to accept a game.  If the umpire declines the game, then it will be offered to another umpire.

The League prefers that umpires work games from the various divisions (Minors, Majors, & Juniors), as each division provides different levels of play and being exposed to different umpires at their games promotes a richer experience for players.


Is there a minimum number of games I need to work?  Is there a maximum number?

There is no minimum number of games required to be worked in a season.

The maximum number is determined by the availability of other umpires, and your own desire to work games.  We need umpires so please volunteer.


Am I insured by the League?

Adult volunteer and youth volunteers are covered by the League’s insurance.
