Maryland State Umpires Association - MSUA

The Maryland State Umpire Association (MSUA) is a representation of volunteer Umpires committed and dedicated to officiating Little League baseball and softball games/activities across the State of Maryland and the District of Columbia; MSUA is endorsed by both Little League International and the Little League East Region. 

The vision of our founding leadership was simple, to improve the officiating of Little League baseball and softball across our State and Washington DC.  For more than 20 years, the success of our Association can be seen in the extraordinary number MSUA volunteer Umpires selected for  Little League International World Series and Regional Tournament Championship; across all levels in both baseball and softball. 

Join us in becoming a MSUA Umpire today!

MSUA Umpires routinely answer the call of duty for District, Sectional and State Baseball and Softball tournaments. We are extremely proud of our Umpires, all whom shared their dedication and commitment to Little League Baseball and Softball across the State of Maryland, the Little League East Region and wherever we are called upon; consistent with the MSUA Charter.
