Umpire History & Information

Westbury Umpire History

Westbury Little League has a group of “unsung heroes” that most of you do not even know. These are the members of the Westbury Little League Tournament umpire staff. This group umpires the Tournaments hosted by Texas District 16 and surrounding Districts as well as our Sectional and surrounding sectional Tournaments. The majority of Westbury families do not recognize these men because they do not call games where Westbury teams play for impartiality reasons. The members of the Westbury Little League Tournament Umpire Staff have been on this staff ranging from 5 to 24 years. They have continued their volunteer duties well after their children have finished their Westbury Little League playing career. The following is a listing of some of the accomplishments members of the Westbury Umpires have achieved during the past few years, and will be achieving this year. Westbury Little League is fortunate to have representing this fine league, the most highly recognized and highest qualified and experienced umpire staff in all of the Southern United States.
