The ABUA/GB Umpires Association will hold a special training clinic at Grovehill Playing Fields, home of the Herts Baseball Club, on Sunday 22 March from 12pm – 5.30pm.
The Clinic – requested by Herts and offered free-of-charge by the Nations only federation of baseball referees – will offer both theory and practical training, and is a great introduction on how to officiate a game from behind home plate.
Things kick off with an indoor strategy workshop from 12pm – 2pm at the nearby Grovehill Community Centre [map]. Then, in the afternoon, the activity moves to Diamond 1 at the Grovehill Playing Fields [map], were attendees will get to test their mettle as umpires. Some of the Herts Falcons will be on hand to demonstrate various plays around the diamond, while umps-in-training can practice making the calls.
