Umpires & Staff - WYBSL

Umpires & Staff


The WYBSL schedules over 700 games each season using the following classification of Umpires by league level:

  • Green and Red Hat: The Umpire Director schedules WYBSL trained and paid umpires.
    • Upon completion of paid training/evaluation, compensation varies by experience and can be a great first job for high school students age 14 and above.
  • Blue and Black Hat: OSHAA Certified umpires are used to officiate all games at this level.

In Tee-Ball and Coach-Pitch leagues adult volunteers are asked to count pitches, call foul balls and safe/out at bases. Please speak to your coach to help out!

All umpires must complete concussion training.

Become a “Blue” – Contact our Umpire Director at if you’re interested in umpiring!
