This year HLL will be using patched home plate umpires and a youth pitch counter for all Major regular season and playoff games.  As a result of this HLL will also provide a youth home plate umpire for all Single A games.  Youth pitch counters, bases and home plates umpires will continue to be used for all AA and AAA regular season and playoff games.

In addition to the umpire changes, HLL is looking for youth umpires and pitch counters that are committed to being part of an ongoing experienced umpire program.
