The Boston Parks and Recreation Department invites teens ages 15 to 18 to take part in its
Umpire Training Program beginning May 5.

Participants learn to umpire in a hands-on, classroom environment and on the field throughout the spring with instructor Bill McCallum of the New England Baseball Umpire Club (NEBUC).

The Umpire Training Program provides a fun way for young adults to learn leadership,
responsibility and accountability.

Whether a high school athlete or not, becoming a junior umpire in a local Little League program offers teens a way to grow their self-esteem and gain experience in a fun, educational setting.

Upon completion of the training, participants are guaranteed summer employment through the
Department of Youth Engagement and Employment working as umpires in the Mayor’s Cup
Baseball Tournament and Boston Citywide Baseball League.

The classes will be held at the Boston Parks and Recreation Department headquarters on the
third floor at 1010 Massachusetts Avenue in Roxbury on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for
eight weeks beginning May 5.

Games will be at Moakley Park in South Boston.

This opportunity is open to Boston teens eligible for employment through the Department of
Youth Engagement and Employment’s SuccessLink program.

Candidates must turn 15 on or before July 6, 2020, and cannot turn 19 on or before August 14, 2020. Applicants must be full-time residents of the City of Boston.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 24. In order to apply, applicants must first sign up here and select the umpire program. The second step is to fill out an application available by emailing program manager Charlie Conners at [email protected]
