Umpire Resources

The Little League umpire is essential to the operation of every Little League program.

It is not enough to know the rules of the games of baseball; however, being a Little League Umpire also means being able to fairly and impartially enforce those rules in the context of a game for the young players.

Little League Umpires should never strive to be the center of attention. They should let the players be the stars. In fact, it's been said that the best-umpired game is the one in which nobody could remember who the Umpire was. Veteran Little League Umpires will say the highest praise they receive is a "good game, blue," comment from a young player.

Some of the tips you will find on this page are very basic, while others are more advanced. Information is provided to be useful for any umpire at any level of Little League - even for someone who is just thinking about umpiring. We'll add more content from time to time, so keep checking back for updated tips.
