The GLBUA provides quality certified umpires to cities and towns of the Merrimack Valley, Middlesex county areas of Massachusetts as well as cities in New Hampshire. All GLBUA umpires undergo a rigorous training program and are certified by the MBUA (Massachusetts Baseball Umpires Association). GLBUA members umpire games in Massachusetts and New Hampshire at all levels - College, Men''s Leagues (such as over 30, over 40, and over 50 year olds) as well as, American Legion, High School Varsity, JV, Freshman, Babe Ruth, AAU, Pony and Little League. The GLBUA takes pride in believing that the association provides the best baseball umpires in the region. We require our members to dress professionally, hustle, and always act like a professional. Many members of the GLBUA are also certified in New Hampshire in Federation Baseball rules. All member umpires must attend GLBUA clinics on rules, issues, umpiring mechanics, and game conduct. All umpires are also evaluated both behind the plate and on the bases during live games. This training and development program ensures the member umpires of the GLBUA meet the highest standards of umpire professionalism. You can always count on a Greater Lawrence Umpire to act and officiate like a professional.
