I would like to welcome you all to the “NEW” Hamilton Baseball Umpires Association website! We are excited about the new changes that we have made and look forward to working with everyone to help improve umpiring within the city of Hamilton and area.

An exciting new addition to our website is our Facebook page and our Twitter account. Feel free to “like” us or follow us; and we are promising to keep everyone updated with baseball news. Not only will we focus on our association but we will provide the latest baseball news in Hamilton, in Ontario, and in MLB.

The Hamilton Baseball Umpires Association is one of the oldest umpire associations in Canada! In 2006 we celebrated our 100th anniversary! There are lots of stories about umpiring in this great city of ours, if you are a former member and wish to share a story please pass it along to us!

On average we umpire over 700 games in any season. We cover all levels of baseball from Rookie Ball right up to Old Timers.

We are always looking for new members, if you are interested in umpiring please make sure you are able to get to one of the certified Baseball Ontario clinics in the province.

Hamilton is hosting the Baseball Ontario Level 3 Super Clinic on Saturday April 23rd at Westdale High School. Cost is $45.00

Level 1 & 2 Clinics will be April 30th at Westdale High School. Cost for Level 1 is $25.00 + $5.00 for lunch, Level 2 is $45.00 + $5.00 for lunch.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our executive members.
