Umpire for Cap City

Cap City Needs You to Umpire

Cap City needs you to step up to officiate baseball games for the children in our community. It’s rewarding and can be a lot of fun if you’re a baseball lover.

The Little League ideal is to have volunteer umpires. Reasons for this include: everything else in little league is built on volunteerism, it can actually increase quality, builds community and enthusiasm, and gives us more control to run games following our values and rules. We can only do it with volunteers, like you!
