Behind The Mask

Become a Youth Softball/Baseball Umpire! 

We all want to keep the game of baseball/softball alive and well within our communities in Southern Minnesota. To do so, we need to start recruiting and developing new umpires to add to allotment we now have. If you are interested in staying involved in the game you love, but no longer want to play, why not try becoming an umpire. We are in search of you interested in trying and will get you the needed equipment and training to start becoming an umpire. For more info - check out the flyer below
