Umpire Uniform
 
The following uniform is expected for Umpires in Burlington. A recommended progression is listed below for the ‘minimum’ standards in terms of wearing ‘official’ umpire clothing. This is intended to spread out costs for umpiring over a period of years. The strict adherence increases as the umpire progresses through the levels. Please contact the Umpire In Chief for specific questions.

Parent Meeting/Umpire Orientation Presentation.

 

Bomba is pleased to be offering a new equipment program for our umpires this year. As a result, the traditional parent meeting is being re-shaped. More information will be provided by late February on a date and time in April for parents and umpires to attend an information session which will include the sizing and hand out of the umpire equipment. 

 

The new Umpire and parent’s meeting was held on Monday May 6. The presentation is available for download below. For questions, please reach out to umpireinchief@baseballburlington.com
