BYB YOUTH UMPIRE PROGRAM

  • A fun way to support your community, learn more about the game
  • Gives you added support on high school / college applications because it requires many of the qualities schools look for - leadership, confidence and the ability to make decisions under pressure
  • Provides a great way to make some extra money while staying involved in baseball - get paid $25 per game

 

Registered umpires can work Spring, Summer and Fall seasons (but must complete training in spring!)

 

Both new and returning umpires must complete the registration. All new and returning umpires are required to complete the training sessions held in March.
