We are looking for people who can become role models and leaders. We want people who are teachable.
We have a gap right now with a lot of umpires with great experience and then a lot of young umpires. It would be nice to start filling that void in the middle. And we really encourage women to participate.
I do it for the love of the game. Most of us do.
The issues umpires face are a little different than those of officials from other sports because of the time commitment. The logistics of it are very demanding for everyone involved.
