Maryland State Umpires Association - MSUA
The 19th Annual MSUA State Clinic, held on 2/15
was a tremendous success. Despite the difficulties with the snow/weather, and a last-minute power outage at host facility,
more than 80 Volunteer Little League Umpires were in attendance from Maryland Districts 1, 2, 3 (DC), 5, 7 and 8.The host
District (7) and it's supporting cast did a fantastic job of supporting this year's clinic/training.With our rotating
sponsorship schedule, D5 will serve as the host District for the 2015 State Clinic.
Thank you all again for being a part of this very special training.
