Review for Umps Care Charities Inc, Edgewater, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What I love most about this charity - besides how much fundraising goes directly to those in need - is how those behind the charity are the only ones who can do what they can do.

As Major League umpires, they are so connected to a game everyone loves on a big stage. Through their on-field pre-games and tickets to children and families to their pre-game hospital visits to sick children in cities where they have games, the charity provides a bridge to pro baseball, and all that embodies, in a way only they can.

Additionally, what I’ve noticed is how they recognize gaps in need. Umpires at any level who have fallen on hard times due to an illness, fire or other tragedy? Their family committee provides direct financial assistance.

Scholarships needed for children adopted late on life, because those families had little time to save? Their All-Star scholarship provides funds for all years of college to one recipient each year.

Umps Care does what it does because they can where others can’t. We at choose to support them year-in-and-year-out because they can do things we can’t.

I believe this is the best charity in baseball that most have not heard of. Our support makes a bigger impact than at those charities most have.

If you are considering supporting Umps Care, know that you’ll see an immediate, positive impact equal to your level of support.
