Umpire Operations Manger

Robin Pelster - Robin has been participating in Serra and now Sunnyvale little league since 2009. She got involved when her husband was managing two teams simultaneously and the level of administrative work was too much for just one person. Since this time Robin has volunteered in various capacities; team mom, cookie dough fundraiser, filling snack shack vacancies or anything else needed. Most recently she has been asked to join the Umpire Leadership team by Cody to assist with some of the day-to-day operations.

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
