Continuing with the success of the last year's camps, MLB Umpire Camps will again offer five free, one-day clinics in 2016. The camps offer training for umpires of all levels, from beginners to seasoned veteran umpires. Instructional staffs include long-time umpiring greats, such as: Bruce Froemming, Charlie Reliford, Randy Marsh, Larry Young, Ed Montague, and Ed Rapuano. These current MLB Supervisors, along with other pro-instructors will work with candidates on balls and strikes, base work, situation management, and much more!
Each of the following dates will also serve as prospecting clinics. Thirty-five attendees from last year's clinics went on (at no cost) to the MLB Professional Mini-Camp in Ft. Myers, Fla., in December. Ten of the Ft. Myers attendees in 2014 advanced on MLB scholarships to the two professional umpire schools this past January, and all will be beginning their pro careers this June.
MLB Umpire Camps have trained more than 700 military members and 4,000 aspiring umpires overall. Additionally, over 100 attendees of MLB Umpire Camps have gone on to work in professional baseball since 2006. Don't miss your chance to meet and work with some of the best in the game, and see if you have what it takes to work in the Big Leagues!
