West Seattle Baseball has implemented a Youth Umpire Program for the Mustang and Pinto divisions. The intent of the program is to take the stress off the parents (who were our umpires previously) and train 11 year olds and older to become umpires. These kids have generally grown up playing in the league and have a decent knowledge for the game. The benefit to the Yump, is that the get the opportunity to see the game from the other side. They learn rules that they may not have known before, and build a different appreciation of the game of baseball.
