The Umpire School, an NASO Summit Support Organization, announced today the addition of eight staff members to meet the demands of its increasing student enrollment.
In addition to newly hired PBUC evaluator, Tyler Funneman, Minor League Baseball umpires Chase Eade (Appalachian), Blake Felix (California), Brandon Henson (Southern), Tom Honec (Eastern), Javerro January (South Atlantic), Ron Teague (California) and Lew Williams (Midwest) will assist Professional Baseball Umpire Corp (PBUC) supervisors in instructing students at The Umpire School from Jan. 6 to Feb. 3, 2013, in Vero Beach, Fla.
PBUC oversees the training and employment of umpires in the Minor League Baseball system throughout the United States and Canada, and provides lead instructors for The Umpire School.
"The addition of eight new staff members for the 2013 class, all of whom are uniquely qualified to help our students achieve their personal and professional goals, gives The Umpire School a lower student-to-teacher ratio, allowing its attendees to receive even more individual instruction," The Umpire School Executive Director Justin Klemm said.
