Major League Baseball to Host Free, One-Day Umpire Camp at Marlins Park in Miami on Saturday, June 27th

Major League Baseball will host a free, one-day umpire camp at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida on Sunday, June 27th. Staff for the event will include many accomplished former MLB Umpires, current MLB Supervisors and Observers, as well as Minor League and NCAA officials, including Bruce Froemming, Charlie Reliford, Ed Rapuano, Rich Rieker, Cris Jones and Steve Rippley.

This is MLB's third free, one-day umpire camp of 2015 for anyone interested in umpiring in baseball and softball, including those aiming to begin professional careers. In total, six events will be held in 2015, culminating with the MLBUC Professional Mini-Camp in Ft. Myers, Florida in December.
