While we all would have loved to have been on the links in Arizona as we usually are this time of year for our UMPS CARE Golf Classic, the pandemic had other ideas.

Our virtual event, The Un-Classic, proved to be a big hit and brought together UMPS CARE supporters from around the country and in Canada!

The Un-Classic featured a star-studded lineup:

  • Joe TorreHall of Famer & 4X World Series Champion Manager
  • Ron GardenhireFormer MLB Manager
  • Gary DarlingRetired MLB Umpire and President of UMPS CARE
  • John Hirschbeck5X World Series MLB Umpire
  • Harold Reynolds, MLB Network Host & Former MLB player                                         

Fans had a chance to ask questions to the panelists and got all the inside stories from on the field and off the field moments.

Proceeds from this event support UMPS CARE programs, including hospital deliveries of Build-A-Bears, youth programs with MLB umpires and college scholarships for children adopted later in life.
