Auction:

The auction is an exciting ending to a full day of training. Through the generosity of our instructors, we will have a variety of professional umpire related items to auction off. Not only is this an opportunity to take home something special from the 2020 clinic, but the proceeds go to support clinic activities. 100% of the proceeds go to support this program. Please bring check or cash for auction items. It is a great way to get an item of Major League proportion and help to sustain this umpire improvement initiative.

Want to have a digital memory?

Bring your own device and we will happily record your plate work and feedback.
