The GHBL Umpire program always needs more teen umpires.  This is a great way to get your kids involved in the game and help turn them into a complete baseball player.  Umpires are paid $28 per game 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 separately. We prefer to have all of our new umpires exclusively focus on the Minors division. 

Spring 2019 Umpire Training will take place at Long Park on April 7th from 2:00pm - 3:30pm  (meet near the snack shack).  Expect Orientation to take about 2hrs - equipment and uniforms will be provided.  Some paperwork will need to be filled out by player or parent.

To signup to umpire this season please  fill-out  the following form.  2019 Umpire Application 

We now use the CaddieNow app/platform for game assignment and payment. CaddieNow supports local youth caddie program and umpire programs throughout the country.  

After filling out the Umpire Applications you should Download the CaddieNow app and Sign Up as a Caddie in the GHBL REGION.
