If one umpire covers a game, the rate is 1.5 times the rate in the chart. The home team is responsible for any travel fee incurred because the umpires show for a game and the game is not played.

The collection is growing, if you'd like to contribute, please contact Dan Turkeltaub, Our League History page contains a list of alumni whom have gone on to Collegiate, Minor, and Major League success.
