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.
