As a major community service project in my high school experience, I volunteered over fifty hours to umpiring little league baseball games. This organization is close to my heart as I played baseball in my youth and there was always a shortage of umpires. To help this shortage, I began umpiring at the age of nine for younger divisions. during my high school years I became very involved in umpiring higher-level little league games and all-star tournaments where umpires are very short due to the sporatic schedule. Supporting Little League baseball and other youth sports organizations promotes fitness and teamwork for life in the next generation.
