2023 USA Softball NJ District 2 Umpire Information

Updated Feb 11, 2023

Your last chance to umpire softball and/or baseball this season is about to pass, but there are still some spots left in our upcoming softball and baseball instruction classes.

Between the HS BB games and youth softball and baseball games, my group accounts for about 8,000 game assignments a year, which is why our classes are a good place to start. It does no good to learn how to umpire if you don't have games to work.

Our instruction classes will be held on Saturday and Sunday mornings beginning in March, from 10am to 12noon, in Cranford, Union County. 

Our classes are unusual, in that we incorporate mechanics - how you move on the field, how you get into position to make calls, and how you make calls - from the very beginning of the class. When you graduate, you will have a solid understanding of the rules, but more importantly, you will know what to do on a ballfield, whether you are working with a partner or alone. The cost is $100 for 20 hours of instruction.

The rules classes will be held on Saturdays from 10am - 12 noon at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue, Cranford. Classes will begin on Saturday March 4, and then continue March 11, March 18, March 25, and April 1; the mechanics classes will be held outside on the fields behind the Orange Avenue School, 701 Orange Avenue, Cranford, on Sundays from 10am - 12noon, beginning Sunday March 5, and continuing March 12, March 19, March 26 and April 2.

The games we assign are in the following areas: Union County, Middlesex County, Essex County, Morris County and Somerset County. I am also the assigner for Rick Waye's high level softball tournaments under the XTreme Dimensions banner in Armstrong Park in Ewing New Jersey.
