Their work in one way or another has helped shape SC Minor Baseball into the best youth sports organization in Sask.

Each nominee is evaluated on each of the following:
1) Their overall skill level and ability
2) Sportsmanship, not only on the field but off the field as well
3) Leadership
4) And the impact that player had on the success that his team enjoyed this past season

Junior and Senior Umpires of the Year
The Junior and Senior Umpire of the Year Awards aim to recognize the valuable contributions the umpires make to the success of SC Minor Baseball.
Although their work may not always be appreciated by those who are on the wrong end of close call, these young men and women aspire to do the best and ensure that the game is played in a fair manner. They work tirelessly to learn not only the rules of the game but how to deal with everyone they may come into contact with during the course of play.
SCMBA wishes to recognize the umpires in two classifications; Junior for those who are newer to the “profession” and of course, Senior for those who have more experience in calling games.
SCMBA is proud to have such a very strong group of umpires that work our games. We have received numerous compliments from across the Province with regards to the experience out of town teams have had with this group and this is a tribute to their command and professionalism.
