District umpire training is scheduled to begin on Tuesdays in March, the 14th, 21st & 28th. First Interstate Bank Operations (on 6th Ave N across from North Park) 6:30-9:00p.m. Greater focus this year on mechanics with basic rules coverage. This is, of course, geared to officials 0-4 years experience. We would love to see those officials with more than 4 years umpire experience to attend so you can be up to date on rules and get a feel for the general philosophy of handling the game and especially put yourself in position to mentor the new kids as they learn our craft. Some of you could really use a brush up on mechanics. We witness a couple of truly bizarre plate mechanics now and then and our intructors will be demonstrating the most up to date mechanics.
Please contact your leage umpire in chief, Carl Hansen at CHansen@dadco.com to get registered. Those umpires who attend all three complete sessions will receive a MT1 "Blue Crew" umpire jacket suitable for use during games and nice enough to wear when not working games. Everyone attending will receive rule books.
