Lake Murray Little League Volunteer Umpire Training Group Impresses Training Staff

Today Lake Murray Little League held its Umpire Training Clinic. Twenty Umpire volunteers attended and participated in the training provided by Lake Murray Little League Senior Umpire Staff, Chuck Cadwalader, Dave Mezzacapa, Jon Sumac and Scott Biggers U.I.C. “The group we trained today was very impressive, they will make great Umpires.”
The volunteers participated in the district 33 training regiment. We started with the Basic 6 calls – Balls-Strike-Safe-out-foul and time. We then moved to the A position first base and practiced calling runners – out or safe. We then moved to second base and the B position. We practiced making the calls at second and the proper position we need to be in to make the call. “We put the group through the drills and liked what we saw, they are talented.” We then moved to the plate and our volunteers were trained and practiced calling balls and strikes.
We will have some good plate Umpires from this group. Pat Hawley and David Weisl will be attending the District 33 Umpire Clinic next weekend at Chollas Lake Little League. They will represent Lake Murray Little League at the District 33 Umpire Training Clinic this Year. Hats off to them. As Lake Murray Little League Umpire-in-Chief, I would like to thank the Volunteers that participated today and to all the Volunteers that make for a very successful season.
