The JSL Umpire Coordinator for the 2019 season is Bob Hanzlicek – any/all questions should be directed to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in being an umpire for Jr Saltdogs for our 2019 season, please complete and submit the attached application form.
Umpires must have internet access as all games will be self-assigned using Arbitersports.com on a first come, first serve basis. Umpire candidates must be at least 14 yrs old by May 1, 2019. Experience is not required; however, a basic understanding of baseball and the rules is necessary.
The heaviest evenings for JSL games are Monday and Tuesday nights at 6pm and 8pm. If you have other commitments on these nights, then this will not be the right position for you.
If you are hired, you will receive confirmation in writing in early April along with additional details about the MANDATORY Umpire Clinic/Meeting for new hires which will be held in mid-late April. New umpires to Jr Saltdogs MUST attend or they will not be hired. NO EXCEPTIONS.
