Cody Thompson - Cody has been involved with Little League as an umpire for 15 years, but has been involved with Sunnyvale Little League (and formerly Serra Little League) for 22 years as a player then umpire. In 2011 he was inducted into the District 44 Red Shirt Umpire Staff. And in 2016, Cody was selected to be 1 of 14 umpires to go umpire at the Western Regional Tournament in San Bernardino. He was chosen to be the plate umpire for the ESPN televised West Championship game between SoCal and Nevada.

Fans and players boo and abuse umpires, but there isn’t one umpire in the history of baseball who has ever been proved guilty of being dishonest. I’ve very proud to have been an umpire.
— George Pipgras, American League Umpire 1939 - 1946
