Jim EvansDear fellow Umpire:
Thank you for checking out our website and for your interest in the Academy training program. Our training is reaching students worldwide as we help launch professional careers and take amateur umpiring to new levels. If you are serious about your umpiring, I hope that you will study your training options carefully and contact me personally if you have any questions. Without bragging or manipulating numbers, you can rest assured that just as many, if not more, umpires affiliated with this program are working in the Major Leagues and in the minor league system as those from any other umpire training program in the world.
