Umpiring at High Park

High Park Little League welcomes player and adult umpires, veterans or beginners, each season at both the T-Ball and Little League divisions.

Umpiring provides for a chance to “give back” to the organization and earn some spending money. The league provides competitive games rates and regularly provides two back-to-back game shifts in the baseball division. An umpire orientation clinic for new umpires is held each Spring before the start of regular season. Best part-time job in the park!
