Event description

Description

An instructional clinic designed to provide the Little League umpire with training on the field mechanics used on the 70, 80, 90 foot diamonds in a 2 umpire system. The clinic instruction will cover basic positioning, making calls and proper signals. Mechanics used by both plate umpire and base umpire positions in making calls on plays on the bases will be covered. Emphasis will be on how to get the proper angle to see calls from inside the diamond. Also, a special session will cover the rules that apply to the pitcher, with focus on what is an illegal act that would result in a balk.

This clinic is designed for umpires with a general knowledge of basic umpire mechanics through attendance at a previous league run or District 4 run basic mechanics clinic, but all are welcome. Students should intend to umpire on the "Big Diamond" for the coming season in the Intermediate, Junior or Senior Baseball Divisions.

Instructors willl be from the California District 4 Umpire Training Staff and other Western Region Little League instructors.

Students need to be prepared for active participation on a grass and dirt field. They should wear appropriate shoes (no metal cleats). Wearing your umpire uniform of shirt, pants and hat is encouraged.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Yes. Participants must be at least 13 years of age.

FAQs

What can/can't I bring to the event?

No dogs or other pets are allowed. The use of tobacco products and e-cigarettes is not allowed.

Students should bring everything they need for active participation and dress accordingly.

FAQs

Can I attend only part of the clinic?

We know that several hours is a significant amount of time to devote for a Little League volunteer. However, the clinic is designed to build upon skills learned throughout the moring so partial attendance is discouraged.
