Here is where you have an opportunity to register to become part of the "Call-up List" for our Southwest Regional Tournaments. Please be advised that becoming a member of the Call-up List does not guarantee that you will be called up. Many factors are involved in the decision making process.
In general, umpires are initially assigned to Regional tournaments by the Regional Commissioner. When additional umpire support is needed, the Regional Commissioner works with the Host State Commissioner and the Host League to determine who will be assigned.
In all cases, umpires need to be registered with the Region within the prescribed time period.
Criteria for the Regional Call-up List Registration:
1. Certification as a Babe Ruth National Umpires Association (NUA) umpire in Baseball, or Softball, or both (Combined).
2. Experience officiating in at least three (3) Babe Ruth sanctioned State tournaments PRIOR TO THIS YEAR.
3. A positive recommendation from your District Commissioner, State Commissioner, Assistant Regional Commissioner, and/or Regional Commissioner.
DON'T WASTE OUR TIME! Be sure that you meet the requirements set forth above...
The Regional Registration period is NOW through APRIL 1, 2016. If you have not NUA Certified and completed the rest of these requirements by April 1st. you are not eligible to officiate in a Regional tournament. [Please note that you will not be eligible to umpire in any sanctioned Area, District, State, Regional, and/or World Series tournaments unless you are NUA certified prior to the start of those tournaments (re: Rule 11.05.2)].
Become a member or renew your membership in the Babe Ruth League, Inc. National Umpires Association. Then, if applicable, register with your State providing them with your work history. Then submit your application to the Region. Once we receive your registration your request will be reviewed for approval.
