The Mid-American Umpire Clinic is a Harry Wendelstedt Umpire School Affiliated Clinic, located in Springfield, Missouri, designed for high school umpires who are looking to better their career or are looking to make the jump into college baseball.
Our mission is to provide quality training to all umpires in order to promote uniformity and professionalism. Our goals are to encourage standardized umpiring mechanics, application of the strike zone, and handling situations.
While at the clinic, every umpire will:
Receive 1-on-1 attention during cage sessions, Umpire live games while being video taped, Work simulated games with actual players and Receive honest written evaluations from our staff of professional and college umpires. Register for the Mid-American Umpire Clinic here.
For those of you still looking for a good umpire clinic to attend this fall, I would highly recommend attending this one in Topeka, Kansas October 4-6.
The Topeka Premier Umpire Camp is a great 3-Man College-Level Camp!
The head instructor is Jeff Henrichs, one of the best instructors in the nation.
This is a great opportunity to learn from Big 12, Big 10, and Missouri Valley Umpires. Our instructors work in these leagues and have College World Series, Super Regional, and D-1 Regional Experience. You will definitely learn from the best.
Commissioners from NCAA D-1, D-2, NAIA, and JUCCO will be in attendance. Please make plans to attend Oct. 4-5-6 in Topeka, Kansas.
