The Board of Directors is contemplating using paid umpires to cover all the divisions where live player pitching is used. In past seasons, we have been unable to secure volunteer umpires for the lower divisions such as Minor A and Minor B and some Majors and Juniors games.
We have created this poll to see what your opinion is regarding paid umpires like other leagues use to avoid having games without umpires and thus allowing the coaches to coach their respective teams without having to worry about umpiring duties.
If you agree we should use paid umpires, select the YES option along with the percentage increase in the registration cost you are willing to pay. If you do not agree we should use paid umpires, select NO.
Thank you ahead of time as we eagerly await the results.
