So how do you become a World Series Umpire?
The process begins locally with your State UIC nominating you through your Regional UIC to the World Series Tournament UIC. The World Series Tournament UIC makes selections based on nominations and the number of Umpires needed. Unfortunately the number of Umpires required is directly proportional to the number of teams. The number of teams is often not finalized until very late.
Start at the local level by improving your skills, making yourself available and letting your intentions be known to your UIC.
