The JSL Umpire Coordinator for the 2017 season is Bob Hanzlicek – any/all questions should be directed to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All umpire positions have been filled for the 2017 season. If you were hired, you will receive confirmation in writing by April 20th along with additional details about the MANDATORY Umpire Clinic/Meeting for new hires which will be held in April. New umpires to Jr Saltdogs MUST attend or they will not be hired. NO EXCEPTIONS.
All 2017 umpires should carefully read the materials below:
2016 Umpire Meeting Handout (includes ArbiterSports Website Instructions and Umpire FAQs) (2016 handout is for reference only; the 2017 handout will be added by late April)
2017 Division Rules and Clarifications - updated 6/8/17 (2017 umpires should keep a copy of this document and have it with them at each game they umpire in case it’s needed for reference).
If you are interested in being an umpire for Jr Saltdogs for our 2018 season, please check back in February 2018 for the 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, 2018. 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.
