Little League Announces Change in Umpire/World Series Policy

The policy regarding the maximum number of World Series assignments a volunteer umpire may receive has been changed.

Previously, a Little League volunteer umpire was permitted to umpire only two different World Series tournaments in baseball and/or softball. Also previously, there was no minimum time limit between those two World Series tournaments. 
The new policy places no limit on the number of different World Series tournaments in baseball and/or softball that an umpire could work. However, the new policy places a minimum four-year hiatus between each of those assignments - during which the volunteer umpire must continue to provide his/her services to the local league/district.

With these additional opportunities spread out over a number of years, it is our hope these veteran umpires will continue to lend their expertise to the Little League program beyond their most recent World Series assignment.
Here are the conditions that apply:

1. Any umpire who has been assigned to a World Series may apply for another world series at a different level. 

2. It must be at least four years since the last assignment. (Example: An umpire works a 2009 World Series. That umpire once again becomes eligible under this condition to be recommended in 2012 to umpire a different World Series in 2013. If that umpire works a World Series in 2013, that umpire again becomes eligible under this condition to be recommended in 2016 to umpire a different World Series in 2017.)

3. An umpire may only be assigned to any one of the eight World Series one time.

4. An umpire that has left the Little League program for one season or more must re-qualify once again with all the required recommendations and umpire at least four years from when that umpire came back into the program.
