2016 International Tournament Umpire Resume Deadline Approaching



Attention Umpires! We would like to take this moment to send a special note of appreciation to all Little League Baseball and Softball Volunteer Umpires that plan to submit Umpire Tournament Requests to the Eastern Region Headquarters; all of which will be considered for a possible 2016 Little League Baseball and/or Softball Regional Tournament Assignment or World Series Tournament.

Please understand that the November 1st deadline is fast approaching; any application that is submitted after this date will NOT be considered. There are many deserving umpires within the region that will request assignments and meet the deadline, and therefore any late applications simply cannot be considered.

The East Region Staff will review these applications/resumes during the months of November, December and January before officially selecting the umpires for all levels of tournament within the region. Official notification of such assignments will then be made to all specific umpires and District Administrators.
