Serving the Youth of San Gabriel Valley since 1956
We had 10 umpires this year who were assigned to work Pony World series games in several divisions, We also had one working Western Regional Little League games in San Bernardino. We also covered a very large part of Pony Tournament games along with District 19 & District 20 Tournament games along with 9-10 Baseball Section III, 10-11 Baseball State Division, 11-12 Baseball Sub Division North, Junior Softball Section III, Senior Softball Section III and Senior Softball State Division as well. This is because we have the best Umpires in the Valley!I
In an effort to grow those numbers even more it is very important that we have the best of the best instructing our umpires. We decided that it is time to take the next step in continuing that effort and implement some changes. We hope these changes will help each and every umpire improve their knowledge as well as their skills.
We now have three Lead instructors Rocky Reynolds for the veterans, Dan Hutton for the 3rd and 8th year Umpires and JT Rentschler for the new to 3rd year Umpires. Along with the Lead Instructors we have added:
New Mans Class – Oscar Villa, Chuck Kemp and Dennis Miller.
3 to 9 Mans Class – Ernie Downing
Veterans Class – Frank Eddy, Steve Osaki and Dennis Miller.
We have spent this fall revising our classroom curriculum along with field clinics and cage work opportunities to improve your umpire knowledge and field awareness.
