MLB announced last week 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, Florida 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.
