Umpire Mechanics Training/Waiver Approval Clinics
by posted 01/04/2018


In January and February 2018, DRALL will hold five (5) Umpire Mechanics Training/Waiver Approval Clinics
 

Jan 6 or Jan 13 – Focus is plate umpire mechanics associated with calling pitches (e.g., balls, strikes, etc.).

Jan 20 – Focus on plate umpire mechanics after the ball is put into play (e.g., hit, passed ball).

Feb 3 – Focus on base umpire mechanics when in the “A” position (i.e., no runner on base).

Feb 17 – Focus on base umpire mechanics when in the “B” or “C” position (i.e., runner on base).

 

This will also be a great opportunity for managers, coaches, parents and potential youth umpires (age 11 and up) to get the knowledge they need to be confident and comfortable on the field and/or in the stands.

 

Each subsequent session will build on the learning from the previous sessions as we move into advanced base mechanics and plate mechanics.

 

Sessions are open to any individual from any league and/or district.

 

Location: Del Rey American Field (6705 W 77th St, Los Angeles, California 90045). Note: Park behind Church and then proceed through gate down to the field.

WE START AT 9:00 AM SHARP! Please arrive early so that you can stretch and be ready to work. Sessions typically go to 11:30 AM.

 

Questions: Reach out to Andy Inkeles, DRALL Chief Umpire

Play Ball - Keeping Perspective

“Youth sports have the potential to offer great benefits to your child, but it's up to you to make sure they have a fair chance by keeping your perspective that baseball is just a game.”

 

(WLL) -- Sports can bring out competitiveness in everyone. It can be easy to get caught up in the game and become emotional, especially when your kid is the one in a high-pressure situation like being the batter in the final inning with two outs, runner on third, and it's a tied game.

Parents often take great pride in their children's athletic success when for example, their child gets a hit in this situation, but too often also show negative emotion when their child strikes out. If your athlete's success is linked to your self-esteem as a parent, or maybe if you have high hopes for your child to play at higher levels, then emotional reactions can creep in and become more likely to happen. 

At the end of the day, baseball is just a game, it's supposed to be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved. In a year, it won't matter if someone made an error in the second inning of today's game.

Youth sports have the potential to offer great benefits to your child, but it's up to you to make sure they have a safe environment to participate in this wonderful game. It's not the end-all-be-all, and it definitely isn't your child's job or profession! By keeping the perspective that little league baseball is just games that offers a place for your child to grow then you can stay on track. Youth sports also offer the parent an opportunity to grow as a mentors to your child, so take those moments to build up you kid and encourage your kid when they fall short. Enjoy the game and the benefits, no one is getting paid, yet...

Make sure to follow us on Facebook and twitter for more news and exclusives photos of our league.  Share your pictures with us by using our hashtag #PlayBallWLL

See you at the yard!
