We urgently need new officials.

Recently we have already made an appeal to all clubs to actively go looking for people who want to attend the umpires courses. As we can all conclude, there is a huge shortage of officials. So please sign up or gives this info to interested volunteers. We mainly think of people who are already active at regional level.

Without enough officials playing games would be near to impossible…

That is why KBBSF-FRBBS is once again setting up courses for federal baseball umpires and federal softball umpires. We hope for many participants, only that way we can further develop our sports together!
