See The Game From The Best Seat In The House

Why become an umpire? The most common reason is to remain active in the sport and to continue enjoying the game. Other reasons given by those who have taken up umpiring or scoring involve being injured, having to stop playing but still wishing to be involved with the players. These reasons, as well as others, are very valid but the key is, like playing, enjoyment.

There is the opportunity to travel to new venues, both locally and nationally, and to make new friends in the game. No matter where you are, you will be one of the closest onlookers to the action – the best seat in the house.
