Vacaville Pony prides itself in providing a professional experience for our players and parents.  Our league thrives on its reputation, and our umpiring team plays a key role in that reputation.  We hold our umpiring team to a standard that our young people deserve, and we look forward to working together to make it the very best.  Below are some rules and expectations:

  • All umpires must attend the umpire clinic to be considered for umpiring in our league.

  • All umpires must attend and work one scrimmage during the preseason to get certified.  If you are not certified, you will not be scheduled for games.

  • When you send your availability you must put dates and times.  If you are scheduled and are not available, it is your responsibility to workout a replacement umpire.  Failure to make a scheduled game will result in a written warning.  Failure to make a second scheduled game will result in being suspended indefinitely.

  • When I send you a confirmation of your assigned games, you must reply to that email to acknowledge your schedule.

  • Make sure you understand the time limits for your games.  DST is here, so it's pretty simple.  Pinto and Mustang - 2 hrs, Bronco - 2 hrs 15 min (all year).  It's very important that you start games on time, so be at the field 30 minutes prior to the start of your game.

  • Once the game has started you need to keep the teams hustling between innings (This is part of your job).  Pitchers should only get 8 warmups if new and 6 if continuing from a previous inning.  This is very important to keep the games moving, we need you to help hustle the kids in and out of the dugouts between innings (Especially on Saturdays).  Too many games the umpires are just standing around, talking or not paying attention and pitchers are throwing 15 or more warmups.

  • If you encounter rain or have darkness issues and are unsure what to do, meet with BOTH managers and get their input.  Never risk the safety of the kids to get a game completed.  You can also call me or get me to the field (I'm around most nights) if needed.

  • There is a small green shed attached to the snack bar.  It has a combo lock on it.  The time cards are on the wall and there is a box for completed time cards.

  • Game balls must also be returned to the snack bar for use in future games.

  • Each time card must be properly filled out.  Please fill out all info and make sure you get at least one manager to sign it.  It will affect when you get paid.  For all the new umpires, payroll ends on the 15th and 31st.  Checks will be available within 2-3 days after the end of the pay period.  The check are kept in the snack bar.
 Thank you for your continued support and professionalism.
