Veteran fast-pitch umpire Jim Wharton and a staff of instructors will conduct an OHSAA-approve softball umpire class. The class starts Feb. 4 and runs eight consecutive Wednesdays at Westerville South. Upon completion of course studies and passing a two-part test on the final day, students will attain an OHSAA license for high school fast-pitch softball and then can pay a fee to secure an ASA umpiring license. The fee, which is for summer fast-pitch softball, is not included in the the cost of the course. For more information, contact Wharton at (614) 832-4786 or at 902 SR 61, Lot 35, Marengo 43334.
