Mike Ritsi, who oversees the East Hampton Town Little League’s baseball and softball umpires, said Tuesday that while he has 10 or so umpires on hand at the moment, he is, nevertheless, short-handed.
“I’ll be happy to take anyone who volunteers, though I’d prefer it not be a parent-coach,” he said during a brief conversation Tuesday.
Ritsi has been doing some of the umpiring himself, “though not much because I’m also the high school’s jayvee baseball coach, and we’ve had three games a week lately.”
There are, he said, “as many as six Little League games per day,” on fields in Montauk, Springs, and East Hampton.
Those interested in umpiring have been asked to call Ritsi at 384-2727.
