(UPDATED LOCATION) UMPIRES - MECHANICS TRAINING SATURDAY

Posted by South Milwaukee Little League on May 28 2020 at 01:09PM PDT

SMLL Umpires,

The base/field mechanics training session will be held THIS SATURDAY at Oak Creek Little League Complex.

Details:

  • Date: Saturday, May 30th
  • Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
  • Location: OCLL Complex, Field 1
  • Pre-registration NOT required. Tennis shoes, dressed for the weather, and an eagerness to learn is, however.

The parking lot entrance is a one-way drive adjacent to the house on Shepherd Drive. It was being paved today, so the lot by the field may not be available. Drop-off is encouraged, pick-up in same spot.

What will be discussed:
In a normal year, we will be discussing plate mechanics and base mechanics for a 60’, 70’, and 90’ field. We will be going over the basic calls for what an umpire will make. We will also be going over mechanics to be used if the plate umpire is to make calls from behind the pitcher, and whether it’s a 1-umpire or 2-umpire system.

Social distancing will be the #1 priority, and the fields offer plenty of room to spread out. There will be NO scrimmage game played. There will be NO usage of any umpire plate equipment because equipment will not be shared. This is a practical walk through of plate and base mechanics for multiple levels.

Who can attend:

  • Any new umpire who went through the virtual umpire training.
  • Any veteran umpire who wants to get refresher training.
  • Any veteran umpire who wants to learn 70’ and 90’ base mechanics.

Please advise that upon arrival, and before/during/after training, social distancing will be REQUIRED.

TRAINING WILL START PROMPTLY AT 10:00 A.M. IF AN UMPIRE ARRIVES AT 10:00 THEY ARE LATE (JUST LIKE A GAME).

Thank you, and stay safe!
SMLL

OCLL is on 6th Street just North of Drexel in Oak Creek. If you’re headed there you can disregard the information about it being at Oak Creek East Middle School and the directions that include Shepard Drive.
