Casper Youth Baseball is looking for members of the youth community to play the important role of umpires for the 2010 season.
This opportunity is considered by many as a great chance for youngsters with a bent for baseball to make money besides having a lot of fun.
Most of the umpires are ages 14-16 and play baseball. More umpires in that age group are needed, as well as adults to fill the shortage. Former umpires are encouraged to return to the game.
An umpire school on Tuesday and Thursday evenings begins March 16 at 7 p.m. in room 158 at Swede Erickson Thunderbird Gym at Casper College. The school teaches baseball rules, field mechanics and handling game situations. Cost is $30.
If you are interested in umpiring, contact Kirk Nelson at Bush-Wells Sporting Goods, 235-6671, or Tammy at the Casper Youth Baseball office, 234-7087
Do not waste this wonderful opportunity to explore your umpiring skills. After all, life beyond the normal stuff can be experienced only when you make unique moves and career decisions. Who knows, you could be the next professional baseball umpire!
