Question Pay Rates for High School Baseball Umpires

I was wondering what the pay rates for high school baseball games are around the country. Here in northern Illinois we are getting $56 for a 2 man varsity, $53 for a one man under level, $98 for a 2 man varsity double header, and $93 for a single man under level double header.

Here in Ct, HS Var 2 man is $73.42, 1 umpire is 110.13. Double headers are 2 fees.

This was the rate last year. I believe it is going up to 74 and change this season.

Here ya go:

In Oregon for 2007:

6A-5A-4A Varsity Fee $48.00
6A-5A-4A Sub Varsity Fee $36.00
3A-2A-1A Varsity Fee $43.25
3A-2A-1A Sub Varsity Fee $32.50

Two officials are required at the varsity level.
One umpire may be used in an emergency situation only.
Sub-Varsity: Two officials should be assigned but one official may be assigned at a rate of 1-1/3rd the “per official fee” rounded up to nearest $ .50 cents.

Mileage is paid from a predetermined start point round trip at .35 per mile.

All games 7 innings and there is no discount for doubleheaders.

State Championship Sub rounds pay $53.00
State Championship Final Game pays $58.00

These games also pay mileage (overnight accomodations for State Championship Game Umpires).

The rates vary wildly in the southern Illinois area.

3 different schools pay $55, one pays $50, a whole bunch pay $40 and some smaller schools pay on $37.50.


All of these are for two man crews....no 3 man crews here until the Supersectionals.

I would have thought Oregon would be far higher, it looks like us here in the Cleveland area are somewhat "competetive"

Varsity - $46
JV - $32
JV (solo) - $46
Freshman - $28
Freshman (solo) - $41

Summer time:
14U & Under Travel (2 man) - $40
15U & Above - $50

We do not get any mileage, except for state tournament games. I believe sectional game fees are around $50, districts around $60-70, and im sure regional & semi-final & final games over $100.

Here in my part of PA, the pay amount varies by school and area. On average, varsity is 50-55, JV is 40-45 below JV is slightly lower.

In the summer, our association sets a $45 flat rate for all games except for men's over 30, which we get 50 since they play 9 innings.


There is no travel/mileage fee in either.

Central Kentucky Game Fees

We have a pretty good deal in our association and the two regions we call. $60 for first 7 inning game or single game and $50 for 2d game of DH. No mileage but higher game fees than most of the state. Same rate whether varsity or junior varsity/freshmen. Of course one of the two regions we call has had a team in the state championship game the last 6 years in a row and won five of them. The quality of baseball, even at the JV level, is great and the fans really know their stuff. Thus, the coaches, players and fans expect A LOT from their umpires. Top notch appearance, rules knowledge, hustle and mechanics are a must. Not much room for error or sloppy umpiring. I only have met two guys in our association I could think might be called a Smitty or a Charlie and they only call JV ball. I call other places in the summer and nothing comes close around here to the high school ball in the spring.

In Massachusetts, it's $70 for varsity, $49 for JV. One umpire games are fee-and-a-half. No mileage. Games played under OBR-based rules.

In Knoxville, TN...

Varsity is $60 for a single game (going to $65 next year), and $90 for a double header (going to $95 next year).

JV is $45 for 2-man, $50 for single...each goes up $5 next year.

Summer ball, depending on time limit is anywhere from $30-$45/game. We're not getting rich, but it's good extra spending money.

In NH, our 2007 fees for baseball are $74 for V, and $54 for sub-varsity. These numbers are also for any NHIAA sanctioned sport, from football to volleyball.

We get a fee and a half for 1 umpire, and 2 fees for a double header

I don't have any data on playoff fees, those are not normally released till later on in the season

Dallas chapter of TASO:

$54 to $58, depending on school's distance from a predetermined point. The base fee is $40.

Varsity or sub-varsity, one man or two, makes no difference.
