(see information about mandatory meeting below)
We are always in need of dependable umpires for the summer baseball and softball season. Games are played at the following parks/diamonds: Hobbs, 11th and Lawless Park (Formerly 11th and Black), and Colony West. Please consider helping us to enrich children's lives. Not only will you receive payment for your time spent umpiring, (SALARY PER GAME: $20 for base umpires and $30 for home plate umpires), but witnessing the smile on a child's face as they reach home plate is priceless.
- All games are scheduled in the evening at 6:15 or 8:15
- For those who may not have home plate umpire equipment, a limited supply of equipment is available for checkout. Dates to pick up equipment will be provided at the umpire meeting.
For additional information, please email Kids First at
