Calling All NEW Umpires!

If you are passionate about the game of baseball and turn the age of 13 by May 1, 2013, then you are invited to a meeting at East Grand Rapids High School's gym on Saturday, March 23, at approximately 2:30 pm -- and immediately following the juniors' tryout. This meeting will last about a half-hour or so and will give you the opportunity to learn more about how to become a new umpire at Southern Little League for the upcoming season. Jim Weiss, Southern's umpire director, will host this meeting and address several topics including training dates, sign-up dates, pay scale, etc. This is an excellent opportunity for you to earn some money this spring, take on the responsibility of running a baseball game, interact with players and coaches, and enhance your future college application or job resume by becoming an umpire.
