District 14 Little League Beginning Mechanics Clinic

CA District 14 Little League held their annual Begining Mechanics Clinic on Saturday February 11th at Vallejo Mill Elementary School, home to Niles-Centerville Little League.

Students from around District 14 were taught by  the District 14 Umpire Instructors, led by the CA District 14 Umpire Coordinator, Rob McCarthy.

The all day clinic covered the basics umpire mechanics, out, safe, fair, foul, ball and strike calls and where to position yourself with runners on the bases.

 The students were given the oppurtunity to make the calls on the field in a simulated game. The students all came away with more knowledge and self confidence then when they started the clinic and all looked great.
