International Umpire Committee



The NAFA International Umpire Committee met for the first time in Hutchinson, Kansas,   in August of 2004.  They have been corresponding by e-mail weekly, developing programs, and policies for 2009 and beyond.  The 2008 season was a huge success and laid the groundwork for us to be one of the most respected umpire groups in the world. The International Umpire Committee works hard to cover two nations and to keep NAFA at the forefront of officiating. For 2008 we appointed Regional Umpire-In-Chiefs across the United States and Canada to better serve our officials. We enter 2009 as one of the strongest umpiring groups in North America and have added Crew Chiefs at our World Series. In 2007, Henry St. Clair was inducted into the Hall of Fame as and umpire and in 2008 Willard Schumack was inducted.  Congratulations to both of them.
