The Madison Umpire Association exists to provide umpires for Madison Baseball Association. While the two groups are closely related, they are separate entities, each with its own board of directors. As an umpire association, it is our goal to provide the best quality officials we can for the game of recreation baseball. We meet every week beginning in early January until the MBA season starts, then we meet every other week. We meet at Asbury United Methodist Church, located at 980 Hughes Road on the corner of Hughes and Gillespie. Meetings are upstairs in the Hope Building on Sunday afternoons and start promptly at 1:00pm. Our meetings consist of classroom training on rules and mechanics/positioning and a test at the end of the meeting. We also do a couple of “field days” each year, then have trainers work with umpires during the MBA practice games at the beginning of the year.
Throughout the year our umpires are evaluated on a variety of topics. You can view these topics in the Evaluation Standards document.
