MYBA In House Umpires Needed!

Calling all baseball fans!  The spring weather will be here before we know it, and that means we need to start preparing to call balls and strikes!  This is for Morton Youth Baseball Association IN HOUSE league..

If you are age 14 (by April 1, 2019) to 18 years old and interested in umpiring this summer, please complete the  application with the link at the bottom, as well as the registration form, which is also at the bottom of this email -  and return both to mortonyouthbaseballassociation@gmail.com by March 1, 2019.  

Please note that the forms should have YOUR contact information.  You will be the contact person, if selected, not your parent(s).  You will be responsible for checking your emails and text messages about work, checking the schedule, etc.

In addition to completing and returning BOTH forms, each selected candidate will be required to attend an umpire clinic, hosted by a patched umpire.  The date for this clinic is set for March 24, 2019, 1pm at Westwood Park.  The good news is that you will be paid for your time at this clinic, and have an opportunity to select days that you CANNOT work this season.  We all have conflicts, so be sure to bring a list of yours to the clinic to prevent future problems. 

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Brandon Booth, Director of Umpires, at:   .

Thank you for your interest in MYBA umpiring…we look forward to seeing you soon!!

MYBA Thanks Jimmy John's!

MYBA would like to thank Jimmy John’s for repeating as a GRAND SLAM sponsor.    Jimmy Johns has been a great partner for MYBA for a couple of years and thru their generosity has turned Jimmy John’s field into our best youth field at the park.     For their sponsorship, we no longer refer to that field by the former name, but on all correspondence on our website, notices and at the ballpark, it is known as Jimmy John’s field.   Take a look at the pictures and see how great that field looks.


If you would like to have a field named after your company, please contract MYBA and let us tell you about the different sponsorship levels.
