Ha ha....I wish. In the midwest we routinely get 1 umpire for very expensive 12u A travel ball....its insane. Our coaches do not teach my daughter to cheat but she is taught to push the envelope. Be aggressive and that she better not be late on that jumpTwo issues here....
First of all, any FP softball above 8U should never be a single umpire. There is too much going on for one umpire to watch. Teams should refuse to play in leagues and/or tournaments that use only a single umpire. Yes, It could increase the cost to play, but it should produce a better game experience.
Second, one of the reasons there are more and more single umpire games (besides leagues and TDs trying to keep costs down) is the nationwide shortage of umpires. We need more people around the game to give umpiring a shot. We also need leagues, TDs, and coaches to support umpires and change the behaviors of fans and parents that discourage new umpires.
