A New Path
Major League Baseball has announced a new path for candidates to pursue professional umpiring careers through the MLB Umpire Prospect Development Camp, a four-week experience that will become the gateway into umpiring careers in Minor League Baseball. MLB’s Umpire Prospect Development Camp will be held at the Jackie Robinson Training Complex in Vero Beach, Fla., in January. Attendees of MLB’s Umpire Prospect Development Camp will flow from participation in MLB’s existing network of free one-day umpire camps held across the country.
The new model backed by Major League Baseball will transform the training of potential umpires by providing quality and consistent training at no cost to participants, with the long-term goals of expanding and diversifying the pool of interested candidates. The system also will expedite the road to the Major Leagues for the most outstanding performers, aimed at making umpiring a more feasible career option.
More camps coming soon!
