Posted by Willow Glen Little League on Feb 21 2019 at 08:58PM PST

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.
