Valuable Information Network Offers Big Benefits


Williamsport, Pa. (February 2002)– Little League Baseball’s new Umpire Registry offers Little League umpires a smart way to stay on top of their game. With registration now available online at myteam.com, umpires can sign up in minutes and start enjoying the benefits.

By joining the Umpire Registry, umpires immediately become part of a unique information network charged with enhancing umpire services for Little League players everywhere.

“We started the Umpire Registry to provide umpires an easy and effective communication channel to stay updated about their game. The response has been tremendous,” Andy Konyar, umpire consultant at Little League Baseball International, said.. “Rule books are literally sent right to members’ doorsteps and through our regular newsletter, umpires can gather industry news and information.”
The Umpire Registry provides an opportunity for umpires to stay updated on rules and regulations, exchange ideas, and offer suggestions that will continually improve them. Umpires can access the latest information on clinics, seminars, rule interpretations, regulations updates and more.

According to Mr. Konyar, tools like the Fair Ball newsletter are providing umpires a network with which they can correspond and receive peer feedback on situations happening out in the field.

“Umpires send in real situations right from the field and ask for feedback, Mr. Konyar said.” The situations and responses also become valuable tools for improving the profession and educating volunteer umpires.” 

The Umpire Registry also maintains an updated file of members, providing an excellent referral resource to league officers and tournament directors.
Umpires also receive:

  • Copies of all Little League Baseball Rule Books 

  • A copy of The Umpire in Little League 

  • A copy of Little League Baseball’s The Right Call 

  • An official Little League Baseball Registry Identification Card, Certificate and Patch
