The Association of Minor League Umpires (AMLU) was formed in 1999. AMLU is a national labor union that represents professional baseball umpires working in Minor League and Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada.

In 2010 AMLU members voted to affiliate with Office and Professional Employees International Union. OPEIU is a diverse white-collar and professional based union representing over 125,000 employees in various industries.

Baseball Assistance Team (B.A.T.) Spring Meeting AMLU Donation

Secretary AMLU

What is B.A.T.?

The Baseball Assistance Team (B.A.T.) was formed in 1986 by a group of former Major League Baseball players. B.A.T. was founded to confidentially help members of the Baseball Family who were in need of assistance with nowhere else to turn. In 1991, a one-time contribution was jointly made by Major League Baseball, the Major League Baseball Players Association and the Gannett affiliated Freedom Foundation to establish an endowment for B.A.T. The charitable organization was not intended to take the place of a pension or to serve as one. The intention was to serve as a bridge to help people get back on their feet. The organization has changed slightly since 1986 but one thing has not changed: If a member of the Baseball Family is in need of medical, financial or psychological assistance B.A.T. will do all it can to help.

This year the Association of Minor League Baseball, in it's annual giving to a charity during the spring training meetings in Arizona and Florida, raised $350 from the umpires individually. Then AMLU and OPEIU both matched the amount given by the umpires for a grand total of $1050 given to this great cause in 2015. Great work guys!

AMLU and UMPS Care Charities

Secretary AMLU


From UMPS CARE Charities summer newsletter:

"On March 23 UMPS CARE Charities teamed up with the Association for  Minor League Umpires to host a bowling tournament in Tempe, Arizona. Minor league umpire crews based in Arizona had a friendly competition running for top fundraisers and bowlers. The first-time event brought in over $16,000. Prizes were given out for top fundraising team, the team raising the most awareness, and the top bowling team. This group of dedicated young men are the up-and-coming ranks of umpires and UMPS CARE is honored to have their support."

AMLU hopes we can continue to help UMPS CARE Charities with this great event to help their cause in the future.
