Umpiring at West Nyack Little League

As you all know, West Nyack Little League is a 100% volunteer organization and our Umpire Program is no exception.  We are proud to say that we are the ONLY Little League in Rockland County that is still using 100% volunteer umpires at all levels.  The only umpires that are paid a small amount are the members of our Junior Umpire program for youth umpires.

That being said, we are always looking for new umpires, especially for our Majors and AAA baseball program.  Any adult that is interested in helping out the league in umpiring, please contact our Co-Umpires-In-Chief, Jeff Powell or Josh Einhorn.  We will train you as to the nuances of umpiring.  Just so you know, all Majors and AAA baseball teams have been given a number of Base Umpiring assignments.  When they reach out for help, please stand up to help out the league.

Our Junior Umpire program is available to all kids, starting at Little League Age 11.  We will train them before ever putting them on the field.  This is a great way for them to make extra money and have fun staying around the game.  I personally began as a Junior Umpire at West Nyack Little League back in 1991 and am still heavily involved today.  In fact, this past year, two of our Junior umpires joined us for an East Region Umpire Clinic in Bristol, CT.  They are well on the path to becoming high school umpires and perhaps even further.

All interested in becoming Junior Umpires should reply to this email or contact Josh Einhorn.  We will be holding a mandatory Junior umpire clinic on Cesca Field at West Nyack Little League on Saturday, April 22nd from 5:30-7:30pm.  All new and returning junior umpires should make all efforts to attend this clinic.  We will be teaching both Plate and Base mechanics.  We are also recommending that all Junior umpires download the free Little League rules app and either Android or iPhone so that they can be knowledgeable on the rules.
