Umpiring school moves to April
Casper Youth Baseball Umpire School, required for school age students, begins the six-week course at 7 p.m. on April 2 at Casper College Thunderbird Gym, room 158, down from the fitness center. A $30 registration fee is required.
The Little League-based comprehensive Tuesday-Thursday course teaches rules, field mechanics and handling game situations. The mandatory April 2 class is information-filled and extremely important.
Most CYB umpires are ages 13 to 16 and play baseball. More umpires are needed in that age group, as well as more adults to fill the umpire shortage.
CYB also needs experienced umpires who have been away from baseball or who are new to Casper. For adult veteran umpires, the optional course is recommended for teaching local rules and mechanics.
