The CBUAO will be assigning umpires for the upcoming Cape Cod Baseball League season which begins on June 12, 2018.  Cape League President Chuck Sturtevant and CBUAO President Nick Zibelli have signed a 10 year contract extension that will continue this great partnership through the 2027 season.  Umpires who are currently registered with the CBUAO may request assignments by emailing nzibelli@cbuao.com

Another sunny day at the Palm Beach Challenge, as the CBUAO Florida Umpire Camp concludes a successful week of intense umpire training. The sold-out event featured 5 days of four, three, and two man mechanics instruction leading into live D-II game evaluations. All of the students had a great time and are anxious to showcase their skills as we head into the heart of the 2018 college baseball season.
