Get in the Game or Stay in the Game!

Umpiring is a great way to be involved with Northeastern Little League. A fun, learning experience for many and an excellent way to build your character and take control!
If you're interested in umpiring, or know someone who is, contact Pete Almeroth at [email protected]

Northeastern LL will now be offering rookie umpires the opportunity to learn under a more experienced umpire.  Rookie umpires now will be able to umpire Minor League games as the base umpire.  You will have the option to partner with a more experienced umpire for the duration of the season or until you feel you're ready to umpire the game alone.  This will allow you to learn on the job and help you build the confidence you’ll need to make quality judgement calls on the field of play.  Rookie umpires will receive $15 per game to umpire bases.
