Umpire In Chief Karen Little 807-632-8704
All players and members of the public aged 11 and up are encouraged to become umpires. It is a great way to get involved in the community and have a little fun at the same time. Umpiring is also a wonderful way of learning more completely, the rules of the game of baseball. The umpire in chief has 20 years experience umpiring for little league in both Windsor and now, Thunder Bay. You'll find Karen to be both knowledgeable and passionate about the game as she provides a safe, fun atmosphere for the kids and adults who umpire for her. There is a clinic held each spring, for new umpires, to explain the basics of umpiring a game and some of the situations that may arise during play.
