you have to be 13 and go to an umpire camp.
12 unless your local league has their own age
Yes and No
Out if umpire catches it.
normally they get $35 a game.. here in Massachusetts that is what we pay our umpires. Actually, the Little League rulebook states that all umpires must be non-paid volunteers. The correct answer should be that a little league umpire has a salary of zero dollars. This is true. As someone who has been an umpire in a Little League World Series I can verify (per the Little League rulebook and Operating Manual) That LL umpires are volunteers and should take no compensation. If you have ever taken any money to umpire a Little League game you will be banned from ever umpiring in a state tournament, regional tournament, and a Little League World Series should LL International find out. Many of us, however, are also umpires for several other umpire organizations for higher level ball that do pay umpires rather well.
If he can be fair and unbiased.
No, not in a High School, College, or a MLB game. In little league 1 umpire is often used.
I have volunteered to umpire tomorrow's Little League game.
Depends on the league. In my league i umpire 10 year old and i get about 20 a game and every Sunday game i get a raise so there are about 180 games so i make a decent amount for being a teenager.
Ask an umpire that umpires a lot. He will either give you the right contact info or give you info on his own. Talk to other umps who ump a lot.
You can start umpiring at age 16 in most recreation league sports. It usually depends on the sport. For softball, it depends on which league you want to umpire in and where.
