Parents, managers, and coaches often complain that little league has too many regulations and document requirements.  This incident is a prime example of why those regulations and requirements exist. “For more than 75 years, Little League has been an organization where fair play is valued over the importance of wins and losses,” said Mr. Stephen D. Keener, Little League International President and CEO.

CHILD UMPIRES
Regulation 9.01(a) states that “Non-adult umpires may be used to supplement the umpire crew but the umpire-in-chief must always be an adult.” Generally this means a person who is not an adult (no age limit) may serve in a game as an umpire, including as plate umpire, provided one or more other adults are also umpires for that game. However, that non-adult umpire cannot be designated as umpire-in-chief for that game. The umpire-in-chief is not required to be the plate umpire.

The Charter Committee is not allowing any waivers for this rule. The rule has been out since October/November 2009. Please see this policy statement from Little League Child Umpires
