2016 Spring Training AMLU and UMPS Care Bowling Tournament

Secretary AMLU

AMLU and our partnership with UMPS Care Charities has been a fantastic success, 2 years in a row now. We are so happy to have our fund raising efforts raise a grand total of $15,588 this year for UMPS Care and over the last 2 years we have raised $32,000 from this great event. Thanks to everyone who showed up and for all those who were generous to support UMPS Care, we couldn't do this without you. In short the night was filled with tasty food, camaraderie, raffle prizes, and whole lot of fun bowling.

Thank you to Umps Care, its staff and leaders, and everyone that helped to make the bowling event another huge success. Special recognition and thanks to: Jennifer Skolochenko, Jenn Jopling,  Gary Darling, Ted Barrett, Alfonso Marquez, Tina Barrett, Staci Marquez, Deanna Reynolds, and Brett Terry. Without your dedication and planning this wonderful event would never taken place.

Some of UMPS Care's Programs:

BLUE for Kids Hospital Program

In the game of life, it's not just about balls and strikes. That's why baseball's men in blue are giving back to Major League Baseball communities across the country. The BLUE for Kids hospital program brings a crew of Major League umpires to the bedside of children with a life-threatening illnesses, and they don't come empty handed. Each crew brings a Build-A-Bear Workshop experience right to the hospital room!

BLUE Crew Tickets

A professional sporting event is just the ticket to inspire a child in foster care or strengthen a mentor/youth match. Major League Baseball umpires offer memorable baseball experiences for children awaiting adoption and at-risk youth in mentoring programs through the BLUE Crew Tickets program.

Each BLUE Crew Tickets VIP experience includes great seats to the ballgame, a goody bag of ‘all things baseball’, and the unique opportunity to step onto the field for a souvenir baseball and photo. The baseball experience is designed to strengthen relationships of at-risk youth and adult caregivers.

Since the program started in 2006, MLB umpires have welcomed more than 6,000 guests to games across the country.
