The National Umpire Coordinators will oversee the National Umpire Program to include: administration, communication, registration of umpires, umpire program oversight and all umpire assignments for the five World Series events. Any umpire that works a DBB Boys/15U/Dixie Majors division game is required to be registered through the national umpire program. Included below is an attachment that has a complete listing of the state umpire-in-chiefs. For the purpose of completing registration, we have a link that will direct you to the individual states umpire registration platform. We are prepared to assist our DBB registered umpires.

Message from the National Umpire Coordinators

Welcome to our official Boys and Majors Umpire Website!

Click Here for link to : “2023 Online Umpire Registration Site Webpage”:

Online registration is required and it is mandatory that all umpires affiliated with DBB Boys/Majors be registered with the National Program. What this means is, when an umpire walks on the baseball field, he shall be registered from day one. There are no exceptions. This will require the watchful eye of every State and District Director and every State and District UIC to ensure this rule is followed.

The umpire is one of the best resources for PR that any program could ask for.

It is our goal to have the best youth baseball program with the best trained umpires. Make us proud!

More information will be added to this page!
