Since 1999, ABUA GB has been operating as a baseball only umpires group providing The United Kingdom officials for baseball games and expert instruction through the Umpire Development Plan.
A constitution, complete with by-laws and policies and procedures, was developed so that ABUA GB could receive sanction by accredited Bodies. ABUA GB has maintained this status uninterrupted for 14 years, showing that it is an association striving to continue to grow and Invigorate itself.
Recruitment of new and experienced officials is crucial to surviving as a group. Once these officials are accepted, ABUA GB has pledged to continue each umpire's education through training and experience.
Every year ABUA GB holds extensive reviews of the rules of baseball and in our On-field Clinics and Classes have been developed by graduates of professional umpire training schools.
The ABUA GB is aslo proud to include IBAF and CEB qualified umpires in our working ranks that also lends invaluable experience to our young umpires and the associations the ABUA GB service.
