Umpires

The GHBL Umpire program is paid $25 per game umpired in the Minors (9/10yo) and Majors (11/12yo) divisions. For the Minors division we typically use just the plate umpire position. While in the Majors division we add a field umpire in addition to the plate umpire. All participants in our program must be at least 12 years old. We keep Majors as 13yo+, so that if we have anyone playing in the league does not umpire their division. On occasion, we will umpire Babe Ruth 13 and 13-15yo  games and Virginia Stars travel games. The Babe Ruth and Virginia Stars game umpires and pay are determined with those games come about. We prefer to have all of our new umpires exclusively focus on the Minor division. 

Fall Umpire Training will take place at Long Park on August 25.  We'll start at 
3pm on field 2, and go for two hours.
