Where are all the umpires?

Where are all of the Umpires? That's an excellent question with only one answer: sitting in the stands wondering where all the umpires are.

This is the perennial problem that plagues leagues everywhere, there are never enough umpires to cover games.

How many games will we have umpires for?

• That’s a darn good question.

• On average, in the 2014 season of baseball and softball, we had 26 home games each week. This was only in the majors division and up.

• On average, we had 6 working umpires, each week. We don't have that many this year. Many umpires also serve in a number of other capacities. They can only work one game at a time and sometimes, they have other responsibilities which prevent them from working your game.

• We have fielded multiple calls each week from Managers looking for umpires. In some cases, we are able to get someone to cover a game if they weren't already working one. In most cases, we simply have not been able to find anyone who is available. Many of the league's umpires started because they wanted to make sure that their kids' games had umpires. It's a great reason to get started.

• The league trains volunteer umpires and will provide the necessary equipment (except for a cup, guys, you’re on your own for that) for you to umpire behind the plate.  Even though it is in the middle of the season, we can still get you some materials and work with you to help get you "game ready." Contact us with your interest in becoming an umpire at hnlluic@gmail.com.

Finally, one request: when you are at the field, watching a game and you haven't been willing to help out by umpiring, please don't sit behind the fence, or along the fences and yell at the umpires. These VOLUNTEERS who have taken time away from their family, work or the yardwork that they desperately need to do at their own home are out there so your kids will have a game and so their manager can actually manage their team.

If you truly believe that they don't know what they are doing and that you can do a better job, come out and share your knowledge and experience, your kids will appreciate the work that you do and you will have a new appreciation for how hard your kids and their managers have worked all season.
