How Can You Help?

We are looking for photos, umpire profiles (especially newer umpires), local stories and events and all types of information on umpiring initiatives from all regions of the country. As Between the Lines will published on a regular basis, the need for content is continuous.

Between the Lines is for you and your umpires. If you cannot write an article yourself, encourage other umpires to write something. Everyone has a story to share or information and advice to pass on.
