New Hampshire Baseball Umpires Association

"Dedicated to improving and promoting baseball umpiring in New Hampshire"

3 Man Clinic

There will be a 3 man clinic held at White Mtn Regional on May 14 starting at 8:15. There will be 6 or possibly 7 total games. So there is a need for as many umpires as we can get. This is a middle school scholarship tournament.

Also there is a 3 man clinic at LinWood High School on May 21 starting at 10am. There are only 4 JV games so if you would like to attend this tournament please notify me asap.

Both sites are only 5 inning games.

I know with the time and the price of gas it would be a costly day. I’ve worked it out with both schools that the umpires will be getting some compensation for these games. It won’t be a regular game fee but if you work 2 or 3 games it will help to cover your gas expense.

Since we don’t get to work 3 man very often I think this will help all of us with our rotations. Please email or call 693-387-0530.

Covid Guidelines for 2022

At this time, our best guess is that 2022 will revert back to the standard practices for umpires. However, please note that things can change during the season from a COVID standpoint. I will keep you updated ASAP if that is so.


Be sure to contact the school at least 24 hours in advance, to confirm that the game is still on, and request any updates on their Covid protocols. Please remember that protocols may vary from school to school.

Contact me if you have questions.
Have a great season, Jim Fletcher (Supervisor-of-Umpires)
