Dean Harris is the District Umpire Consultant. The district is very lucky to have him on staff and Dean has 45+ years of experience all at the volunteer level. He has umpired many upper level games including Regional and World Series tournaments. Dean is available to answer any question or interpretation of a rule you may have during the season.
Dean conducts a Little League Umpire class each year. Upon completion of this class you have the knowledge to umpire Little League or Minor League games. This class is not only for umpires but is strongly recommended for managers or coaches so that you understand the rules you are teaching your players.
