Everyone thinks they can umpire.

At least that’s the impression one gets sitting in the stands.

Well, now’s your time to put up or shut up, as District 11, which includes Central Whidbey, is in need of umpires for little league season.

If you’re interested in joining the ranks of the men (and women) in blue, or are already an ump and want to refine your skills, the district is hosting a clinic Sunday, Mar. 18 in Anacortes.

It will run from 8 AM to 5 PM at Marguerite and Don Daniels Field (1915 13th Street).

This event is specifically designed for juniors umpires (players ages 10-18) to learn proper mechanics in a setting with their peers.

Western Region instructors and Regional/World Series umpires will be on hand to run the clinic.

If you’re planning to attend, they request you RSVP, so they can plan how many lunches they’ll need to provide.

Cost is $8.00 for the day and will be paid on arrival.

To RSVP, or for any questions, contact Bill Kosmas at strike_3@rocketmail.com or 360-770-6755.

Want to coach baseball? Now’s your moment.

Whether you have visions of being Lou Piniella’s one true heir or just want to get out of the house and smell the fresh air, I have a job which could be enticing for either a newcomer or a hardball veteran.

As Coupeville gears up for another spring on the diamond, Central Whidbey Little League is searching for a volunteer to head up its rookie baseball squad.

The team is co-ed, open to kids ages 6-8 and has a full roster, but just needs a coach before play starts next month.

If interested, contact centralwhidbeyll@gmail.com.

If you plan on coaching with Central Whidbey Little League this season, mark Mar. 18 on your calendar.

CWLL is holding a coach’s clinic at 2 PM that day (it’s a Sunday) at the Coupeville High School gym.

Wolf softball coach Kevin McGranahan and baseball coach Chris Smith will be on hand for training, skills and drills and additional paperwork and background check info will be handed out.

Attendance is expected for anyone who will be a head coach for CWLL, as well as any assistants or parents who will be used for on-field work with players.

The clock is ticking.

Central Whidbey Little League needs four more players to register by midnight Wednesday, or it may be unable to field a Juniors softball squad this spring.

Which would be a pity, since CWLL has been a dominant team in the division in recent years.

And come on, someone has to thump on Anacortes. It could, and should, be you.

Two years ago, the league faced a similar situation but rallied to pull together a complete roster at the very last second, then rolled to a crisp 13-3 mark.

Juniors softball is open to girls ages 13-15.
