The 2nd Annual UMPS CARE Charities East Coast Classic was a huge success!

We had Major League Baseball Umpires on hand, a tremendous crowd and even a gorgeous day of sunshine all day long at the Westfields Golf Club for a wonderful event!

Proceeds from the event will support UMPS CARE Charities and the delivery of 100 Build-A-Bear furry friends and outfits to kids undergoing treatment at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C.

The event was hosted once again by Brennan Miller and MLB Umpire Chris Segal and featured MLB Umpire Phil Cuzzi as the event’s guest speaker. Kristen Berset-Harris, host of “Great Day Washington” on WUSA9 in Washington, D.C., returned for a second year to play in the event and to speak at the event.

“UMPS CARE is important to both of us because we want to make a difference in the community,” Brennan Miller said. “Chris and I feel fortunate that we can use baseball and umpiring to give back.”
