Hello Everyone, some information for you as the baseball season is just around the corner. On the great news side, our sport is growing in Saskatoon with more players and teams signing up. From 2015 to 2018 we grew from 1,000 players to almost 2,000! With the growth come challenges, one of which is the number of qualified umpires. We had more umpires last year than the previous year but are always looking for more!!
You might ask, what are the benefits of becoming an umpire?
1. Improve your knowledge of baseball and apply it to your game.
2. Build meaningful relationships that can expand throughout the province and even Canada.
3. Make your own schedule!
4. Being an official can look great on a resume.
5. Develop skills that are transferable to sport, work and play.
6. Give back to baseball in a meaningful way.
7. Opportunities to travel – stick with it and you could experience amazing opportunities throughout Saskatchewan & Canada!
8. And finally perhaps the most obvious – you can make a quick buck while having the ‘best seat’ in the game.
