Glad to see the State of Florida is again running a one day Youth Umpire Clinic in Orlando on January 19 at Union Park LL.
Ages 11-17 are invited.
Cost is $15.00.
The clinic is being run by the State of Florida Umpire Association (our District BB UIC is President of the State Umpire Association).

That's nice. Anything like this must help. I'm curious what the turnout will be.

We worked hard this fall to build up our youth umpire program.

Must be nice to be able to have outside clinics in January. :)

Several years ago I helped out at the clinic. As I recall there were about 90-100 youth umps there that year. Did a three hour morning rules clinic with Q&A. After lunch we broke them into groups of 4 for field mechanics (2 and 4 person crews) and plate work. All day clinic, 9-12, lunch, 1-5.


I remember those cold north Januarys but they are way back in my youthful memories.
Moved to Florida in 87, hard to believe it's been that long.
Just got back today from spending New Years Eve in the north Georgia mountains.
When we left there this morning it was in the 40s and when we got home it was 82.
