LLWSUAI and LL Urban Initiative Combine Forces!
For immediate Release!                                                August 25, 2004

Little League Urban Initiative and Little League World Series
Umpires Alumni International to Create Umpire Scholarship.

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (Aug. 25, 2004) – Little League World Series Umpire Alumni International, in conjunction with the Little League Urban Initiative, will establish a scholarship program designed to provide education and training to Little League Baseball and Softball umpires from Urban Initiative programs.

The umpires awarded scholarships will attend a Little League training clinic in their region at no expense to them other than those incurred for travel. Each region will receive an equal amount of scholarships.

“The Urban Initiative is a great place for Little League World Series Umpires Alumni International to continue its mission,” said Barry Rake, president of the LLWSUAI. “There is no question that leagues continue to face challenges in the training of dedicated and qualified volunteer umpires. So, as long as we as an association can be proactive, and create a climate where umpires can go to clinics to better their skills, I think that will help umpiring tremendously.”

The scholarship will total $3,000 with the LLWSUAI contributing, $1,500 and the Little League Urban Initiative contributing $1,500. David James, director of the Little League Urban Initiative will oversee the scholarship program.

“This scholarship will help grow the volunteer base for Urban Initiative leagues,” said Mr. James. “The number of active adult volunteers in a league directly affects the number of children that participate in a particular league, and this scholarship will enable Little League to serve more adult volunteers, namely umpires, and give more children the opportunity to play.”

Little League Baseball and Softball is the world’s largest organized youth sports program, with nearly 2.7 million players and 1 million adult volunteers in every U.S. state and scores of other countries.
