training program

Pacific Baseball Umpires serves the San Diego high school baseball community.  Our training program begins in January to prepare for the spring CIF baseball season and consists of the following:

  • Classroom Studies - Weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings at Calvin Christian High School in Escondido where we'll cover NFHS baseball rules, CCA mechanics, and Pacific Umpires game management protocols

  • Field Mechanics Work - Weekly training initially focused on standard two-man mechanics with special training sessions focusing on both one-man mechanics, for new umpires, as well as four-man mechanics for experienced umpires

  • Mentoring Program - You can get focused attention and guidance by working one-on-one with an experienced umpire. Our Mentoring Program pairs up a new Umpire with an Experienced Umpire, to provide real-time game-time situational learning and growth while on the field
