NEWS & NOTES
 
The New Member Clinics, Mechanics Clinic, Rules Clinics, Exams and Business Meetings are held remotely until further notice
 

Make sure that you un-block any dates for which you are now available. This time of year it is important that all umpires who can work games let the assignors know.
Even with 100 active members in WMBUA, we're stretched pretty thin on some days. Make sure the Assignors know you're available if you can work any given day.​
