About BLUE for Kids Program
Major League Baseball umpires and lovable team mascots provide furry friends, clothing and accessories from Build-A-Bear Workshop® for children with cancer and other serious illnesses. Each event includes a supply of pre-stuffed Build-A-Bear® furry friends, various outfits, cub condos, birth certificates and baseball-themed stress balls. Team photographers capture memories for the children at each event. Since the program started in 2006, MLB umpires have hosted over 180 children's hospital events across the country and in Canada giving out more than 18,000 bears.
About BLUE Crew Ticket Program
BLUE Crew Tickets offers memorable baseball experiences virtually or on-field for children awaiting adoption, at-risk youth in mentoring programs, children battling serious illness and military families. Major League Baseball umpires and caring corporate partners provide kids a VIP experience including great seats to the game, a goody bag of all things baseball and the unique opportunity to step onto the field for a souvenir baseball and photo. Since the program started in 2006, MLB umpires have welcomed over 9,220 guests to Major League Baseball games and expanded to all 30 Triple-A teams in 2019.
About All-Star Scholarship Program
Education is an important part of life. In baseball terms, it gives you a healthy lead as you round the bases. Not everyone gets the same opportunity for higher education. The UMPS CARE Charities All-Star Scholarship was created for children adopted later in life in order to help provide a college education for promising students with a financial need. To help ensure their long-term success, each student is paired with an MLB Umpire mentor and becomes a part of the UMPS CARE Family. More than $300,000 has been awarded since the program’s inception.
About Official Leadership Program
UMPS CARE Charities launched the Official Leadership Program in 2021 to encourage, train and mentor teens to become working umpires. The course includes Social Emotional Learning in the classroom with a focus on leadership, mentorship and sportsmanship, as well as umpiring skills and mechanics taught on the field. Our pilot programs launched last year at MLB Youth Academies in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Houston, and the DREAM Charter School in New York.
