Professionally Qualified Umpires
Students from our 2017 Professional Umpire Course that qualify and accept positions for placement in professional baseball will advance to Minor League Baseball's evaluation course, to be conducted from February 7-14, 2017.
Here are some important date, times, and other details for those students vying for affiliated professional opportunities through the Wendelstedt Umpire School in order that they make the appropriate arrangements following the conclusion of the our course:
The Wendelstedt Umpire School's Professional Umpire Course will conclude with evaluations on the morning of February 4, 2017.
Check-in for Minor League Baseball's evaluation course will begin on February 7, 2017 at 10 a.m., and the opening meeting will commence at 7 p.m.
Students that qualify for positions in professional baseball will be afforded discounted hotel rates at the Best Western Castillo Del Sol for the nights of February 4-6, 2017. Free transportation will then be provided to the evaluation course on the morning of February 7 at 7 a.m. for those who need it.
Students are not required to stay at the Best Western Castillo Del Sol during the days between the courses, or ride with the rest of the group to the evaluation course the morning of February 7, 2017. If they do not choose this option, however, they will be required to make their own arrangements. See Arrival and Departure Information for further details regarding travel arrangements.
