Mileage for Travel

Most travel for umpires in Area 11 comes with mileage reimbursement at the rate of $.50 per mile for the round trip (zip code to zip code).

Mileage guidelines:

  • Only one driver is paid mileage – the official traveling furthest from the game venue
  • No mileage reimbursement is made when the official’s home town is less than 20 miles to the game venue (one way)
  • Officials riding with the driver receive a $10 rider fee for trips further than 70 miles (one way)
  • Officials are encouraged to carpool – issues with multiple drivers need to be settled between the officials and the assignor prior to the game date
