PBSF Youth Umpire Program

Piedmont Baseball-Softball Foundation Umpire Program Background:

  • The Piedmont Baseball-Softball Foundation annually trains and hires Piedmont students to umpire Pinto and Mustang games.

  • All prospective umpires must attend two training sessions taught by professional umpires before they will be allowed to work for the league.

  • The training sessions lead to a thorough knowledge of the rules of the game, and an understanding of correct field positioning for all game situations, proper dress, pre-game conferences, and the importance of being prompt and prepared.


It is the Foundation's goal to provide umpire training that will give students the opportunity to:

  • Learn and improve key umpiring skills

  • Develop the confidence necessary to apply the rules of baseball in game situations

  • Play an important (and fun) role in supporting youth baseball in Piedmont.
