what is the umpire placement course
The Umpire Placement Course is an umpire training and league placement course held in Sarasota, Florida at the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twin Lakes Park, from February 1-8, 2021. Since the inception of the Umpire Placement Course, our goals have been to enhance umpire career development and training, and place umpires into independent and summer collegiate baseball leagues. Whether you're an umpire school graduate, collegiate umpire, or seeking to further your development and learn the 3 umpire system, we can help achieve your goals. Currently in Minor League Baseball, 1 out of every 7 umpires in MiLB have umpired in the Northwoods League, with many more working in the American Association.
