Baseball Umpires Needed
Bethlehem Umpires Association (BUA) is actively taking applications for baseball umpires! Whether you are an experienced umpire, or looking to break into the game as a rookie, we have the appropriate level for you.
We offer a competitive level of play for all levels of experience and the opportunity to umpire throughout the greater Lehigh Valley area. Our organization officiates over 1500+ games for Little League, Travel Teams, Connie Mack, Youth Legion, and LVMSBL (Men’s League) from April until November.
Take your passion for sports and turn it into a part time avocation that will enable you to give back to the community. We accept members starting at 16 and offer education, training and mentorships to improve your skills and obtain higher level games as you gain more experience.
If you are an experienced umpire and you would like to try to get involved in a group we would love to hear from you.
We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from February through September, contact us today through our website (www.bethump.org) or email us at email@example.com for more information! We look forward to speaking with you soon about umpiring for the BUA.
