The Greater Lawrence Baseball Umpires Association and the Merrimack Valley Baseball Association are once again excited to offer training for anyone interested in becoming a MBUA “patched” baseball umpire.

Successful completion of this course and associated training qualifies an umpire to work amateur baseball games from Little League up to and from including men’s baseball leagues as well as membership in the GLBUA, MVUA and MBUA (for umpires over the age of 18). This course is open to all candidates over the age of 14. Umpires over the age of 18 are also eligible to work in high school baseball in Massachusetts.

Classes take place Monday nights on Jan. 29 and Feb. 5, 12, 19 and 26 at St. Michael’s School in North Andover. Cost is $130. To preregister, contact Scott Young at
