As part of the benefits of being an ABUA member we have again been contracted by USA BASEBALL to umpire their events at the National Training site in Cary North Carolina and surrounding areas. Mr. Ron Sebastian, Exec. Member of the ABUA, handles all the umpiring assigning for USA BASEBALL. If you are interested in umpiring at one or more of the events please contact Ron at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING or Dick Runchey Exec. Director of the ABUA at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING . Last year over 100 different ABUA members got a chance to work. If interested please submit an umpire resume to Ron or Dick and they will be in contact with you. Check out the USA BASEBALL website to see how many games they play at the park throughout the year.

If interested to work International Baseball Federation events please contact Dick Runchey, ABUA Exec. Dir and Director of Umpires for International Baseball Federation at JLIB_HTML_CLOAKING for additional details. Last year, eight ABUA umpires received assignments to umpire around the world. ABUA members Joe Burleson and Perry Costello represented the ABUA/USA BASEBALL/IBAF in the Olympic games in Beijing. I look forward to using as many ABUA members as I can around the world to umpire the great game of baseball. Please understand I only have so many events each year to take our ABUA/USA umpires with me but I'm working on having more ABUA umpires have the opportunity to have their dreams come true.
