Door County League Seeks More Umpires

The 2024 Door County Baseball League season, which is scheduled to begin May 12, now looks like it will open with shortages in the umpire pool. With retirements and relocations, the league is stretched thin on fielding eight umpires every week.

Umpire-in-chief for the DCBL, Roger Van Lanen, urges anyone interested in becoming a baseball umpire to seek certification through the WIAA or document their experience to be considered. Candidates will take the WIAA test and be required to have a background check.

Umpires are compensated for each game they officiate. Those interested in umpiring may call Van Lanen at (920) 609-2214 or email [email protected].

Whether behind the plate or in the field, umpires are key to a successful season of great hometown baseball
