Men's, coed slow-pitch softball leagues starting in Brooksville

The Brooksville Parks and Recreation Department will have a men's and a coed NSA adult slow-pitch softball league starting Feb. 23 and 26, respectively.

The league is geared for ages 18 and up. The men play Monday evenings and coed will be Thursday evenings at Jerome Brown Community Center's fields. Cost per player for both leagues is $30 and $170 for a sponsor fee, and there will be a mandatory coaches meeting at 6 p.m. Feb. 13.

For information, call (352) 540-3835.

UMPIRE CLINIC: Hernando-Sumter Umpires Association is offering its third annual umpire clinic at 1 p.m. Sunday at Ridge Manor Sports Complex as a way to train new umpires for youth, adult and even AAU league baseball and softball games.

It will be a three-hour course and umpires can make anywhere from $30 to $50 per game, depending on the age level. The clinic is open to men and women, ages 16 and up, and costs $15.

The clinic will focus on topics including rules of the game, basic umpire signals, proper uses of equipment, selling your call, positioning on the field, proper plate-zone coverage and even detailed training on nonroutine situations (read, arguments). Each participant will then take a 100-question test based on the MLB, high school, AAU and Little League rules.
