UMPS CARE Charities is a 501(c)(3) non-profit established by Major League Baseball (MLB) umpires to provide financial, in-kind and emotional support for America's youth and families in need. Through our youth-based programs, professional baseball umpires enrich the lives of at-risk youth and children coping with serious illness by providing memorable baseball experiences, supporting pediatric medical care, and raising awareness for foster care children waiting to be adopted.

Kids Program
About BLUE for Kids Program

Major League Baseball umpires and lovable team mascots host Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences for children with cancer and other serious illnesses. Each event includes a supply of pre-stuffed Build-A-Bears, bear-sized outfits, cub condos, birth certificates, and baseball themed stress balls. Team photographers capture memories for the children at each event. Since the program started in 2006, MLB umpires have hosted close to 100 children's hospital events across the country.

Tickets Program
About BLUE Crew Tickets Program

BLUE Crew Tickets offers memorable baseball experiences for children awaiting adoption and at-risk youth in mentoring programs. Major League Baseball umpires and caring corporate partners provide kids a VIP experience including great seats to the game, a goody bag of all things baseball, and the unique opportunity to step onto the field for a souvenir baseball and photo. Since the program started in 2006, MLB umpires have welcomed over 6,500 guests to Major League Baseball games.

Scholarship Program
About All-Star Scholarship Program

Education is an important part of life. In baseball terms, it gives you a healthy lead as you round the bases. But not everyone gets the same opportunity for higher education. The UMPS CARE Charities All-Star Scholarship was created for children adopted from foster care in order to help provide a college education for promising students with a financial need. $40,000 in college scholarships will be awarded in 2015.
