Late Game time limits at FHP
Managers and Umpires, Camas LL has an agreement with the city of Camas that FHP lights be turned off by 9:45. This means that no new inning should be started after 9 pm, and all games have a "drop dead" completion time of 9:30.
If you have questions regarding game times please talk with your Player Agent or the Board Member on Duty at Forest Home Park.
Volunteer To Be An Umpire!
Thank you to Alan Kerker for volunteering to be our Umpire-In-Chief!
Camas Little League is looking for adults and kids to help umpire games. The only experience needed is an honest mind and knowing that Little League is about having FUN! Camas Little League provides equipment and training and we schedule around YOUR schedule, so you won't miss that important game! Umpiring is a great way to learn more about baseball and softball and give something back to the community.

Frequently Asked Questions About Umpiring For Camas Little League
How do I sign-up?
Please Email Alan Kerker
Who may umpire?
Anyone 16 years old or older.
What do I have to learn if I have never umpired before?
We will teach the basic skills required to umpire at the umpire skills clinic prior to the beginning of the spring season. In addition, we will provide rule books that umpires will be expected to read and become familiar with. We will pair new umpires with experienced umpires who will provide “on-the-job” training in games. New umpires will start with minors’ games and eventually progress to working majors’ games as their skills allow.
How much do umpires get paid?
Little League prides itself on being a volunteer organization.
How many games must (or can) I work in a year?
Game assignments will be scheduled by the Umpire-In-Chief. Umpires will only be assigned for days and times that they choose, and every effort will be made to accommodate as many requested assignments as possible. Depending on the number of candidates, not all requests may be able to be accommodated, but in no event will someone be scheduled for a date or time they did not request. Scott will provide a schedule request form to all interested candidates.
What equipment or clothes do I need to have?
CLL will provide hats and rulebooks, and make available at each field home plate umpire gear (mask, chest protector, shin guards). Each umpire must wear grey pants and a dark blue shirt (or such other color as an umpire crew may decide for a given game). Other equipment that is suggested is a ball-strike indicator and ball bag. Male umpires who work the plate are required to wear a protective cup. Plate shoes (which protect the top of the foot) are optional.
