Central Region Names Jeffrey Knoebel U.I.C

Little League International is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeffrey Knoebel as Central Region Umpire-In-Chief.

As many of you are aware, Pete Lemos stepped down as Central Region UIC this past spring after many years of service for which we are grateful.

Jeff, who is a dedicated volunteer on the Indiana District 5 staff, has served as District UIC for Shelly Gaither for a number of years. Additionally, he has served as a volunteer instructor at the Central Region Umpire School and in numerous umpire clinics at the Central Region Headquarters on Indianapolis. He also has conducted umpire clinics in conjunction with 2009 Little League Road Shows in Appleton, Wis., and Elyria, Ohio.

To his credit, Jeff has established a great working relationship with the dedicated volunteers who serve as instructors here at the Central Region Headquarters, and has willingly served in a leadership capacity over the past two years.
