In 1995 Rich Fetchiet responded to a call from numerous Midwestern college umpires to create an organization that would both enhance collegiate-level umpiring and improve relationships with college and university baseball programs. Hence, the Collegiate Baseball Umpires Alliance (CBUA) was formed on a few simple premises.

  • The CBUA will recruit qualified and dedicated amateur umpires interested in working at all levels of college baseball.

  • The CBUA will offer umpire improvement opportunities by providing linkages to training meetings and clinics; rules tests; and other educational materials. The CBUA will share information on rules, mechanics and officiating philosophy. The CBUA will provide umpires with a current NCAA Rule Book and CCA Mechanics Manual.

  • The CBUA will liaison with the NCAA National Umpire Improvement Program to ensure member umpires benefit to the fullest from the NCAA’s programs.

  • The CBUA will form alliances with other umpire associations and professional organizations to ensure member umpires benefit from affiliated programs.

  • The CBUA will liaison with NJCAA, NAIA, and NCAA league and conference umpire coordinators and assignors to provide qualified umpires for assignments and/or staff memberships.

  • The CBUA will interface with schools, leagues, conferences, and amateur baseball organizations to establish relationships that will lead to enhanced opportunities for umpiring assignments.

  • The CBUA will standardize the uniform for umpires working games assigned by CBUA assignors.

  • The CBUA will utilize a standardized umpire evaluation process which will incorporate input from veteran umpires, coaches and qualified independent evaluators.

  • The CBUA will remain committed to the highest standards of officiating professionalism and integrity both on and off the field.

The CBUA’s reason for existence is to improve collegiate baseball umpiring and to enhance all aspects of officiating college baseball.
