Dennis Aldridge Umpire of the Year Award

The Dennis Aldridge Umpire of the Year Award is presented to one junior and one senior umpire who go above and beyond the call of duty on the diamond, as well as working behind the scenes and promoting the values and beliefs of the HBUA. The award is named in honour of one of our brother umpires who passed away in 2006, Dennis Aldridge. Initially a separate award from the Umpire of the Year awards, the decision was made to merge the awards after its last individual award in 2009 because year after year, Dennis exemplified the true spirit of the HBUA. Each season, the HBUA will select one eligible junior and one senior umpire of the year based on their accomplishments and ability demonstrated throughout the season. These umpires are carefully chosen and presented with their award at the Annual General Meeting at each year’s completion.
