Dear Board members, managers, coaches, players, parents, and volunteers,
Thanks to all of you, and despite some early season challenges, our MSJLL umpire program was successful again in 2016.  75 volunteers umpired 100% of our games.
  • 119 total games umpired
  • 97 2-man crews
  • 19 3-man crews
  • 3 4-man crews
  • 263 total assignments completed
We assigned our experienced umpires to the most competitive games such as Juniors, Intermediate, Majors, and Interleague.  We developed the next generation of umpiring talent in our easier and friendlier games in Minors.  The entire League showed their support to our umpires.
I would like to thank every umpire volunteer by name.  I am sorry if my record keeping wasn't perfect.
