League President's, UIC's and those that know interested Junior Umpires. With the end of season fast approaching, something that each league might want to consider is sending someone to the Western Region's Junior Umpire School this June. This program will provide the student with a fun filled week, while generating a quality junior umpire. They will come back trained and ready to umpire, just in time for the Allstar games. Each Little League Board might want to consider budgeting the Clinic fee ($275.00), so that you can sent a deserving Junior Umpire.

Handout: Clinic Registration Form Wednesday, September 13 JUNIOR UMPIRE SCHOOL view full size The Western Region Junior Umpire School will be held from June 23 – 29, 2007. This school is designed for umpire’s ages 13 – 18 years of age. Each student will receive videotaped plate instruction throughout the week. Regional School Instructors, as well as Instructors that graduated from the Junior Umpire School will provide the training. We suggest that leagues may wish to sponsor their young volunteer umpires for this training. The local league, as a result, will be rewarded by the information and experience that these umpires bring back to your league. They will be experienced and confident to equip, train, and mentor other umpires in your league. This will be a positive investment for the league as well as the student umpire, and the league will recover its investment many times over. The school includes; meals, dormitory style housing, trip to a professional baseball game, and many more activities and fun. Registration has already begun, but there’s still a few spaces left. The class is limited to 60 participants, so sign up today! The total cost of the school is $275.00. Registration is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday June 23rd and Graduation will be on Friday June 29th at 11 a.m. For questions and sign-up information, please contact the Regional Office at 909-887-6444.

Old wording for the exception to Regulation, VI (c) Exception: If a pitcher reaches the limit imposed in regulation VI (c) for his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch until that batter reaches base, or was not retired, or is put out. ... New wording for the exception to Regulation, VI (c) Exception: If a pitcher reaches the limit imposed in regulation VI (c) for his/her league age while facing a batter, the pitcher may continue to pitch to that batter until any one of the following conditions occurs: 1. That batter reaches base; 2. That batter is put out; 3. The third out is made to complete the half-inning... Details here Please past this information to anyone that maybe interested.
