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.

Calling all youth umpires! The 2024 Spring Umpire Program is underway, with over 100 games across the Pinto, Mustang and Bronco divisions that need 1-2 umpires for each game. PBSF will provide the training and gear to get you behind the plate and in the field. You are required to attend either of our two training sessions, on Saturday March 2 or Sunday March 3, from 3-6 PM (Bern Field - next to Witter Football). You’ll learn umpiring basics, as well as the mechanics of umpiring, so you can be in the right place to make the best call.

You will have a thorough understanding of baseball rules by the end of training. Prior umpiring experience is not required to sign up. Youth umpires must be at least 10 years old and have an interest in the game of baseball.  Younger kids will umpire the lower divisions so no one will be expected to umpire their same-grade peers.

There will be significantly more umpiring opportunities this year where youth umpires are paid up to $40 per game, depending on the level. Join the fun, make friends, learn a new skill, and support PBSF.  Spread the word!

If you have any questions, email the PBSF Umpire Coordinator, Joel Tornatore:
