Welcome All 

Thurmont Little League (TLL) is committed to building and maintaining quality volunteer umpires.  Our umpires consist of long-term, new, and junior volunteers.  We share a love of
the sport, a commitment to our community, and a desire to support our players and coaches.

Umpire training and clinics are conducted within our league, in Maryland District 2 (MD-2), and at
annual clinics conducted by the Maryland State Umpires Association (MSUA).  Membership
in MSUA is available.

We are always seeking new volunteer adult and junior umpires (age 13+).

We are excited about a new season of TLL Baseball and Softball, and we are grateful to all of our volunteers.
