Letter from the Executive Director

I would like to welcome you as you learn more about The Umpire School and the opportunities we have to offer. Use this website as a resource to make the best decision to meet your needs. Our staff is here to help every step of the way. We work with all students to provide a professional umpire training program that optimizes individual potential and prepares our graduates to meet the challenges of the umpiring profession regardless of their skill level or aspirations.

The Umpire School was created by Minor League Baseball and is a natural extension of our efforts to expand and enhance umpire training at all levels. We have tabbed members of the Professional Baseball Umpire Corp. (PBUC™) to drive the curriculum and instruction. This provides our students the one-of-a-kind opportunity to accelerate their development through PBUC’s unique knowledge and experience in training all Minor League Baseball umpires and developing them for a possible Major League Baseball umpire position. Since PBUC’s inception in 1997 every umpire hired by Major League Baseball has come through the PBUC system.

It is a fact that no program can match our combination of professional instruction and evaluation experience. Our staff has umpired at every level from the Major Leagues to NCAA. Add to that our experience in developing talent for Major League Baseball and you have an unmatched combination.

I would like to offer our staff as a resource should you desire to learn more about the opportunities we offer. If you or your association would like assistance with camps, clinics or other ways to improve your effectiveness on and off the field, we are available. Our desire is to grow a strong, mutually beneficial relationship with the umpiring community.

Thank you for visiting us today and we hope to work with you in the near future.

Yours in Baseball,

Justin F. Klemm
Executive Director
