An Opportunity For You!
by posted 11/14/2018



Ok, perhaps you're too old for the Navy, or you get seasick. So have you considered becoming a baseball umpire? Or know someone who would like to? 

The BCC would like to pass along this note from Alex Skandalis, who founded the umpiring program we use for our Youth League and some of our travel programs.  If you would like to know more about umpiring please read the note below and reach out to Alex!


Dear Parents,

My name is Alex Skandalis and I am a co-owner of the New Jersey Sports Assigning Bureau.  You know our Company as the group providing umpires for your local baseball and/or softball league.  I write to you today with a unique opportunity for you to continue your love for baseball and/or softball through officiating.  Soon, your child(ren) will graduate out of youth baseball/softball, what a great way to stay involved, enjoy a game you have followed for years and continue your involvement in your local/surrounding league.  No experience is necessary initially, but you will have to sign up and attend a several week introductory class (one night per week), taught at a local high school in your county of choice beginning in January.  Training, uniforms and equipment will cost about $350, but game fees typically range from $50-$60 a game, meaning you will make back your initial investment in no time.  Umpires of all ages (must be 18+) have used this “hobby” to supplement their income, continue their love for the game and gain valuable exercise during the Spring and Summer months.

If this sounds like a journey that interests you, please reach out to me at .  The number of youth sports officials has decreased annually for the last five years.  We would love to get you signed up and on the umpiring journey.
