Partner, Larry Wolfe, is one of Omaha’s most well known girls fast-pitch softball umpires. He started his career in 1990 and has umpired over 4,000 games and counting as he continues umpiring today.

At his first ASA national tournament in 1998, in St. Louis, it rained and delayed the games. Then the weather finally cleared Larry umpired for 30 consecutive hours and watched the sun rise from behind home plate.
Wolfe has served as a governing board member of the Hillside Little League since 1976, including four years as President. And served as Treasurer using his accounting background since 1994.
