Umpire Information

Welcome to the Umpire Page for Los Gatos Little League

Los Gatos Little League depends on adult volunteer and youth umpires to officiate baseball games.  For active players, umpiring can be a great way to enhance your understanding of the rules of baseball and how they are applied in game situations.  It's also a fun way to stay involved in baseball if you’re no longer playing.  

The League’s umpires come from three categories:

1.     District Umpires:  Volunteer umpires that have been officially certified and/or trained by Little League International.

2.     Adult Umpires:  Persons over 21 who have successfully completed an umpire training clinic such as the Western Region Outreach Umpire Clinic (see below for more information) or equivalent. 

3.     Youth Umpires:  Full or part time students, 20 years old or younger who have completed the umpire training conducted by Los Gatos Little League or equivalent.  Youth umpires do get compensated for their time or receive community service hours/credits.  Youth umpires may umpire AA, AAA, and Majors level baseball games, with the following age restrictions*:

•    AA: 11 years old, as of January 1st 2022

•    AAA: 13 years old, as of January 1st 2022

•    Majors: 15 years old, as of January 1st 2022

Note 1 : *General rule guidelines. Ages can vary depending on experience and evaluations.
Note 2: All Umpires are required to attend our mandatory trainings prior to working any games. Umpires are considered independent contractors based on their expertise in applying the rules of Little League Baseball.
