TO:                      ALL DISTRICT 24 UMPIRES  

Hello everyone!  I would like to thank all of you for your support and a great 2007 season. Chris White, District Administrator for District 24, has appointed me as the Umpire Consultant for District 24. I’m going to bring back some of our tried and tested programs, including the use of crew chief’s with assigned umpire teams, the “5” and “10” year pins.  I’ll be handing out other goodies, which I call the “grab bag” which has pins, coins and other items, during the All-Star Sectional and Divisional games. If you’re interested in becoming a crew chief, please contact me as soon as possible.   

Our umpires that were selected to participate in the 2007 Regional and 2007 World Series tournaments did our district proud!  We appreciate them and we thank them!   Jack Phillips was at Palmdale, California, umpiring in the Junior Softball Western Regional.  Shawn Buchanan was at Sussex, Delaware umpiring in the Senior Softball World Series. Both of them told me they had a great time and learned a lot from other umpires.  

Congratulations to the umpires that have been selected for the 2008 Regional and World Series Tournaments!  They are:

           - Dan Bamsey / Major Softball World Series in Portland, OR 

           - Joe Broxmeyer / Major Softball Regional in Vancouver, WA

           - Bob Morrison / Big League Softball Regional in Palmdale, CA

           - Art Valdez / Big League Baseball Regional hosted by District 2 in WA

Thanks again for all the support and I hope to see you out on the field. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to refer someone that would like to start umpiring!

Regards to all,

Sam McDonald, CA-24
