Hiya! I just completed my first year as an Umpire. I did all levels from Little League up to High School Varsity. I'm a member of the Greater New Haven Baseball Umpire's Association in New Haven, CT. My children are all through High School and I was looking for a way to stay involved in baseball, so I decided to get into umpiring. The players were great and the coaches were pretty good. The parents in the crowd could be a little rugged at times, however, I really enjoyed my first year and I'm looking forward to making all brand new mistakes in my second year. I think I'm in for the long haul. I found this site when I was looking for information on a rule (High School substitutions) and decided to join up.
