Umpire Clinic this weekend
Are you interested in being a Little League Umpire? Umpiring is a great way to get involved in Little League Baseball, meet your 4 hr volunteer requirement, and have fun at the same time.
Willow Glen Little League will be hosting an umpire clinic this Saturday from 11AM-12:30 PM on the majors field.
We will be covering the following:
- Location of equipment
- Conducting the plate meeting
- A review of the base umpire positions
- Plate ump duties vs Base ump duties (who calls outs, fair vs foul, etc.)
- Some rules like infield fly for Majors & dropped 3rd strike for Majors
- Things to look out for like runners leaving early
- A review of the strike zone as defined by Little League
- Rule updates for the Spring 2019
As a reminder, Single A teams and up will be responsible for some upper level umpire games. Attending this clinic will make their time as umpire as smooth as possible.
