It is the bottom of the 6th in the division championship game. There are two outs. Your daughter is on third base and her team is down by one run. The pitch is thrown. It's a wild one. Your daughter takes off as fast as she can and slides into home. At the same time the catcher tosses the ball to the pitcher who holds on and makes the tag. Everyone is looking at the ump and he calls her out. The game is over, you and your daughter are both upset, and it's all the umpire's fault. It was a terrible call and you wish you could change the way it was called. Now you can! No experience necessary.
It is also REQUIRED that every volunteer, including paid, complete a background check. One way you can do this ahead of time is by completing your background check through the Chesterfield County Police. To do this, you will need to visit the Police Headquarters at 10001 Iron Bridge Rd in Chesterfield. There are specific dates and times they are available to do this, so go early, as it can take up to a month to receive. Due to this being a paid position, you may be required to pay to complete a background check if it is not done through the Chesterfield PD. Even if you are simply thinking about being an umpire but aren't sure, go get one. It's free and is good for three years.
Thanks in advance for volunteering, we can't wait to see you out on the field!
