Dave’s Sport Shop gives us a discount on umpire gear. I sometime have used gear for free. First come, first serve.

I want a 48 hour notice to find a replacement. If you can’t ump within 48 hours of game time, you MUST find your own replacement!! Umpires can use the names from my mass emails to contact other umps.

After the game, check out your rule book. If you can’t find the answer, contact me.

Links for fields can be found here. Check locations well in advance of game time.

  1. Before a game?
    Unless you are contacted by me, show up to the field. To get paid, a game must be “official” (3 ½ to 5 complete innings). If a team hasn’t arrived and/or hasn’t contacted me, you’ll receive 1/2 pay.
  2. During a game?
    Use your judgement. Lightning/thunder? Clear the field immediately for 1/2 hour!!
