Josh Einhorn, WNLL Baseball Volunteer Umpire

Character, good judgment plus the ability to get along with young baseball players and coaches are the attributes of an excellent volunteer umpire. This individual commands respect, knows the rules of the game, reacts spontaneously to play situations and makes decisive calls. Common sense applied to the interpretation of the Baseball Rule Book is also a sign of a well-prepared official.

West Nyack Little League is in search of volunteer umpires for our Major League games. We are the only league in Rockland County that is still using volunteer umpires at the Major League level. We have roughly 70 games in the majors during the season that need to be officiated.

We are in the process of putting together a clinic for those interested. For those with limited experience, we will teach you in clinic how to call balls, strikes, safe, outs, fair, foul, and everything in between.

For those interested, please contact Josh Einhorn, WNLL Umpire-in-Chief at madness165@aol.com or Jeff Powell, Asst. Umpire-in-Chief at yankee2357@gmail.com as soon as possible so that we can put the clinic together before the beginning of the season.

For AAA and below, players on a Major League roster or older, age 11 and up are eligible. Again, if your child is interested, please contact Josh or Jeff and we’ll get you on the list. 

The clinic should be scheduled for some time in the next couple of weeks so that we are ready to go come opening day.

Thanks in advance,

Josh Einhorn and Jeff Powell  (The Ump Guys)




– Intentional Walk?  Go right ahead, but it’ll cost ya 4 pitches.
– Batters can’t keep stepping out of The Box.  Gotta keep 1 foot in at all times (unless there is a play, or time-out)

– Game “start times” throughout the schedule are being moved-up this season.  Example: Saturday first pitch at 9:00am (except Opening Day).
– “1-minute in between innings” will become a reality.  One “extra minute”, each inning, could extend the entire game 12+ minutes!  Please be prepared.
– The very fastest way for us to notify you of league news is this website.  Please check it often. But please remember that the Web Admin commutes from New York City 😉

Little League Age-Change Explanation:
Little League conducted a very detailed participation research project. That research showed that parents, players, and volunteers want to see Little League® become, as a whole, a younger program, and give children an easier way to play Little League with their classmates. Our volunteer District Administrators and the Little League International Board of Directors carefully considered the results of the research, and ultimately changed the Age Determination Date for all divisions of Little League Baseball to August 31. This change will ensure that no child playing in the Little League/Major Division will turn 13 years old at any point during their final season in that division. 




NEW LL RULE: Boundary Rule Provides Options (click here to see the Rule)

For 75 years, the Little League community has been based on the boundaries of the local league. We are excited because for the first time in Little League’s existence, there are now two options for where your children can play Little League.

– As always, they can play for the league where your home is located.
– Or, this year (2014), a new rule allows your children to play for the league where their school is located.

In a changing educational landscape, this new rule gives parents the option to register their children for the Little League that is truly most convenient to the family, and further enhance the role of community with the classmates of your Little Leaguers® and their families.
