Team Requirement

Team Umpire Requirement:

All Double AA, Triple AAA, and Majors level teams are required to provide an Adult Umpire for 2 games during the regular season.  

The Umpire-In-Chief will coordinate with the Manager of each team at these levels to determine who will be responsible for Umpiring the games.  The person who is umpiring must have a Volunteer Background Check on file with ULL.  If they have not attended a District 12 Rules/Mechanics Clinic, then they will by default be assigned to umpire a AA game.

Union Little League depends on adult volunteer and youth umpires to officiate baseball games.  For active players, umpiring can be a great way to enhance your understanding of the rules of baseball and how they are applied in game situations.  It is also a fun way to stay involved in baseball if you’re no longer playing.  The League’s umpires come from three categories:

1.     District Umpires:  Volunteer umpires that have been officially certified and/or trained by Little League International.

2.     Adult Umpires:  Persons 18 and older who have successfully completed an umpire training clinic such as the Western Region Outreach Umpire Clinic (see below for more information) or equivalent.  Adult umpires perform without reimbursement.

3.     Youth Umpires:  Full or part time students, 17 years old or younger who have completed the umpire training conducted by Los Gatos Little League or equivalent.  Youth umpires do get compensated for their time or receive community service hours/credits.  Youth umpires may umpire A, AA and AAA league baseball games, with the following age restrictions*:

2021 Season will not have paid umpires (Single A:  11 years old, as of January 1st, 2020 ($20/game))
