Frank Bontempo Selected To Umpire In Little League Region

Little League Baseball's Western Region has selected Frank Bontempo to umpire at the 2016 Western Region Little League (Major Division) All-Star Tournament. The Tournament is held at the Western Region Headquarters in San Bernardino, California.

 

“This is a great honor, to be included with some of the best umpires in the Western Region”, said Frank.

 

Frank started his adult umpiring career with Centerville National Little League, in Fremont. The same league he played in as a child and shared with his two sons, Nicholas and Mark. Frank coached and managed his son's teams from Tee-Ball through Majors and one season of Big League baseball, while serving as the League's Umpire-in-Chief for 10 years. Frank also served as the League's Information Officer and President.

 

In 2010, California District 14 Administrator, Reggie Torres, tapped Frank to join the District Staff as the Big League Coordinator, a position he still serves.

 

“There are so many people to thank, first, Reggie, for his continued support of the District 14 Umpire Program. Without that support, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to be involved with umpiring. I also have to thank my umpire mentor, Bruce Marcellus. His guidance, training, direction, and more importantly his friendship, put me in line to be the umpire I have become”, continued Frank. “And thank you to all the umpires I have worked with over the last 15 years. Especially my great friends, Bob Slyter and Rob McCarthy, with whom I have spent countless hours on the diamond”.

 

In 2003 joined the District Umpire Staff and soon after joined the District Umpire Instructor Staff. Along the way, Frank also attended the Western Region Weekend Mechanics Clinic and the Weeklong Adult Umpire School, each of them twice. Since 2012, Frank has also been a Western Region Umpire Instructor, instructing the Rules Clinic, Weekend Mechanics and the Adult Umpire Academy.

 

"You don't get to participate in these programs, or umpire, without the support of your family. I've been a volunteer umpire for 15 years and every step of the way, my wife, Katy, has been a very encouraging and supportive part of it. Along with Katy and our boys, my umpiring has really become a family experience. And I owe them the biggest thank you” Frank commented.

 

The Western Region Little League Tournament will be played from August 6 through August 13 in Al Houghton Stadium, in San Bernardino. From this Tournament, the Region will crown a Northwest Champion and West Champion. Each will head to Williamsport, Pennsylvania to play in the Little League World Series.
