Attention all baseball players! Interested in more baseball time AND making some money as well? Then umpiring our in-house little league games could be for you!
Applications are now being accepted for umpires for the 2017 Spring/Summer season.
Umpires should be outgoing, willing to respectfully manage a baseball game and have some ball experience. In addition, you may be called upon to instruct players in the rules and/or fundamentals of the game. Applicants must be in the 8th grade or older, up to college age (Adults must go through an umpire organization), and should have played SAA baseball currently or in the past.
Our umpires are managed by Official Finders, a company specializing in scheduling umpires for sports in many park district and high school leagues. Umpires will request games through an online system and all employee questions will go through Official Finders. Younger umpires will be limited to games on weekends only until school is finished. Finally, umpires are provided with a shirt, ball/strike clicker and brush. Safety equipment (helmet/mask, chest protector, shin guards) are located at each field in the equipment box.
