Over 100 umpires listening intently to CBUAO President Nick Zibelli conduct a pre-season clinic meeting in a standing room only library at Smithfield High School this past Saturday. Meeting was to prepare umpires with new rule changes for the upcoming 2015 college baseball season.
This meeting along with another held in Long Island, NY., raised an estimated $1500.00 for Bob Panza. Bob is on a long road to recovery CBUAO thanks everyone who participated.
BOB PANZA UPDATE
Update: 3/3/2015 7:19 AM
Just have a very quick update today. Bob spent 4 extra days at Spaulding, but everything went well and they decided to transfer him to skilled nursing today. As Bill Belichick would say, we are on to Plymouth. He is now at Life Care Center on Obery Street in Plymouth, MA. room 213. It was the family’s first choice, so we’re very happy. The family saw him tonight and he was just settling in. The family can not say enough good things about the Spaulding Rehab Hospital in Charlestown. God forbid any of our friends are ever in need of that level of care, but if you or anyone you know are ever in need of hospital level rehab, that is the place to go. They have brought Bob so far in the 25 days he was there that it is amazing. The family said, he would love to have visits, The family will try to get some info on visiting hours and the therapy schedule so folks know when they can drop in. Thanks for all your prayers, they are working!

During the CBUAO baseball umpire meetings on Saturday 2/28 and Sunday 3/1 fundraising events were conducted with all proceeds benefiting Bob Panza, who faces long term recovery from a brain injury suffered while officiating a basketball game this past January. We are pleased to announce that due to the generosity of our great umpiring staff, $1,500 was raised at the meetings to help ease the financial burden facing the family. Those who would like to donate on-line, can do so at http://www.gofundme.com/GoBob. Thank you so much for all of our efforts.
Only a few early season assignments have been published thus far. The general release of assignments will take place following the conclusion of the preseason meetings and testing period.
