Major League Baseball will host a free, one-day umpire camp at Wolff Stadium, home of the San Antonio Missions, the Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, on Saturday, July 30th. Staff for the event will include many accomplished former MLB Umpires, current MLB Supervisors and Observers, as well as Minor League Baseball Umpires. Among those participating will be Charlie Reliford, Ed Rapuano, Rich Rieker, Cris Jones and Larry Young.
This is MLB's fourth free, one-day umpire camp of 2016 for anyone interested in umpiring in baseball and softball, including those aiming to begin professional careers. The 2016 Umpire Camps will culminate with the MLBUC Professional Mini-Camp in Ft. Myers, Florida in December.
