You Can Be an Umpire!

Who Can Umpire?

Anyone can umpire! We need veteran and rookie umpires. We need baseball and softball umpires. We need home plate and base umpires. We need you. Little League umpires are volunteers. All it takes is the desire to help our children learn the game of baseball and the personal commitment to help umpire a few games a season.


SEPLL and District 2 staff umpires will provide each volunteer with training on rules and mechanics well in advance of your first game. Additionally, mentors are available to provide ongoing training and feedback throughout the season to ensure each umpire is as successful on the field as possible.


Volunteer umpires will receive an umpire's shirt, hat, indicator, plate brush and ball bag.

Sign Up

To sign up, please send an email to SEPLL's Umpire-in-Chief at [email protected]. You will also need to complete the online volunteer application and pass a background check.

Umpire Training and Resources

Free Umpire Training
Southeast Portland Little League and District #2 holds umpire rules and mechanics clinics each spring to help get started or help brush off the dust and get ready for the season. Dates and locations to be announced.
You probably spent a lot of time watching your kids play ball this season. You probably also heard people yell -- or perhaps even yelled yourself -- some of the following:

* "The runner is out if she doesn't slide!"

* "One base on an overthrow!"

* "The hands are part of the bat!"

* "The ball hit the plate! It's a foul ball!"

Are you interested in learning why these statements are true -- or false -- and why? Would you like to become a better coach, umpire or player? Do you want to be a more informed fan?

SEPLL offers free training opportunities. Be on the alert for announcements for your next session.
