Thurmont Little League is committed to building and maintaining a quality volunteer umpire
program. Our umpires consist of long-term, new, and junior volunteers. We share a love of
the sport, a commitment to our community, and a desire to support our players and coaches.
Umpire training and clinics are conducted within our league, in Maryland District 2, and at
annual clinics conducted by the Maryland State Umpires Association (MSUA). Membership
in MSUA is available.
We are always seeking new volunteer adult and youth umpires (age 13+).
Complete the forms listed below and contact our Umpire-in-Chief to get involved.
We are excited about a new season of TLL Baseball and are grateful to all of our volunteers.
Our league strives to be the best Little League in the state of Maryland, providing our children
the finest possible baseball experience through participation in our Little League programs.
With your support we will help develop our player's baseball talents while fostering the Little
League values of CHARACTER, COURAGE, & LOYALTY.
