Butte native an ump at Legion World Series

The American Legion World Series has a little Butte flavor.

Butte native Craig Mills of Burly, Idaho, is an umpire in the tournament that concludes today in Shelby, N.C.

The championship game of the tournament is tonight on ESPN3.

Mills, a 1983 graduate of Butte Central, is a longtime umpire for high school and college. He recently completed a 14-year stint as the commissioner of District IV high school baseball and softball in Idaho. He umpired several state tournaments and five regional tournaments before getting the call to umpire the Legion World Series.

Mills is the son of Butte residents Art and Carol Mills.

“This is a pretty nice feather in his cap,” Carol Mills said. 2 comments
