Families/coaches are responsible for fees associated with umpires and field prep for scrimmages/practice games. For an ump and field prep, it's typically around $150 total. Each player/family can chip in a few dollars to pay for this.

It's always a FREE option to rake up the field yourself (most fields have rakes), and have a parent or coach umpire from behind the pitcher.

Field Prep

The Stars use the company Terrain Group for field prep during the year. You can arrange field prep and payment directly with Terrain Group (815-648-2163) and the fee is $60.

Since Terrain Group is the company we use to do all of the field setup for our games, they are familiar with our locations, etc. They will prep the field, set bases/mounds, put down chalk lines, batters boxes, etc.


Starting in 2023, we are using the company Official Finders to secure umpires for our home games.  We can help you find an ump for your scrimmage if you don't have one on your own. Please email us for help:


Cost for a "regular" ump is $85 per game, but we may be able to work with Official Finders to provide less experienced or umpires in training at a lower cost for scrimmages.

Coaches would pay the ump directly at the scrimmage.
