Instead of calling strikes, Minor League Baseball Umpires are going to be rolling strikes at their annual Spring Training charity bowling tournaments to support UMPS CARE Charities and our programs! 

Every year at Spring Training, MiLB Umpires take time away from the ballparks to participate in charity bowling tournaments in Florida and Arizona for some friendly competition among umpire crews and to give back to the community.

Support your favorite umpire crew and help UMPS CARE raise $10,000 in both Florida and Arizona to make magic happen on and off the field all season long.

UMPS CARE is ready to roll!
