Our umpires in our Minors (9/10) and Majors (11/12) programs are mostly local teenagers who have been trained by our Umpire In Chief, Joe Goldsmith. Joe does a great job in preparing the teens for our games. If there are ever any issues with umpires, please contact Joe. Anyone who is interested in umpiring should contact Joe in early February of each year.

For Fall Ball, there is a new cycle of umpires and training that begins in July. This is a great environment for new umpires to get training - contact Joe if interested.
