We are now accepting umpire applications for the 2015 season.
Fill out and submit the on-line application by Monday, April 13. Training sessions will be held on Tuesday, April 14, and Thursday, April 16, at 6 pm at the VLL Complex. All prospective umpires must attend one of these sessions before being scheduled for games. Umpires need to be 12 or older as of April 1, 2015.
NOTE: Due to game conflicts, we have added a special training session for high-school baseball players who would like to ump this year. This session will start at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, April 14. We are aware that Freshmen will be traveling back from Janesville that evening. Please attend as much as you can. If you have already registered and would like to attend this session, please e-mail Heith Dey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you are a first-year umpire and need all new equipment or are a returning umpire and need to replace equipment, please bring money to the clinic for purchase. The cost is $9.00 for an Umpire shirt, $3.00 for a clicker, and $3.00 for a broom. However, new umpires receive a $10 credit, so you will only need $5 cash to purchase all of your equipment. Returning umpires receive a $6 credit for whatever replacement equipment is needed.
Please share this info with anyone who may be interested in umpiring for VLL this year. Playing in the league is not a requirement.
Thanks to Heith Dey, who is taking on our Umpire-in-Chief position this year. If you have questions about umpiring this season, please e-mail him at email@example.com.
