Dothan Leisure Services Host a Dixie Boys Umpire Clinic


Baseball season is coming up and Wiregrass area umpires are getting ready to call strikes and balls.

Dothan Leisure Services held a district six umpire clinic for individuals interested in officiating.
Umpires went over proper procedures and rules of America's favorite pastime.
At the end of the lecture all umpires had to take a 25-question true or false exam.

"There are a lot of rule differences between each different type of baseball. Actually Dixie Boys and Majors are actually more in line with the high school rules and some other organizations,” said Philip Winslett.

All Dixie Boys umpires are certified. After completing training they can umpire at any league or tournament in district 6.
