Welcome to UmpTalk

Welcome! Hello World!

ChrisKauffmanThanks for visiting the website. UmpTalk is designed to be a way to learn about baseball and softball umpiring – from the umpires that have been there.

There’s such an imbalance in proper umpire training that I want this website to be a place to learn, share and grow as baseball and softball officials.

I am a 25-year veteran of baseball umpiring at many, many levels – from tee ball all the way up to championship games of collegiate level baseball (and even a little brush with pro ball mixed in).  I’ve worked in Kauffman Stadium and also worked on sandlots. I love baseball and I love umpiring. It’s been a passion of mine for decades since I worked my first game when I was 14. I am genuinely honored that you stopped by my website and podcast.

We’ll be posting podcasts, training and posts all dedicated to making the art of umpiring better and better moving forward.

Play Ball!
