About PUA

The Pittsburgh Umpire Association (PUA) was founded in April of 1916, for the purpose of promoting the study, knowledge, and understanding of the rules and mechanics of officiating organized amateur baseball for its members, and to promote the spirit of fair play and sportsmanship in organized sports to members, participants, fans and administrators.

PUA provides umpires for numerous leagues and levels of amateur and community baseball in the South Hills neighborhoods and towns of Pittsburgh, as well as other areas near the city of Pittsburgh. These leagues go from 10- to 12-year old Little League tournaments, through Pony, Colt, and Supercolt league schedules, up to and including young adult competition with high school and post-high school travel teams, American Legion, and Palomino baseball.

Our organization meets in the second week of each month in the spring and summer months to conduct Association business and assign games. Meeting attendance is required for active members. All active members pay yearly dues of $60, allowing PUA to cover its operating costs and provide for an end-of-season social outing for all active members at no cost.

PUA currently has 42 active members, who yearly elect an executive board of our president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, rules interpreter, and games assigner. The current PUA officers are:

PresidentTim Seemiller
Vice PresidentJoe Cornell
SecretaryJason Baumgarten
TreasurerGary LaValle
Rules InterpreterJohn Elion
AssignerDan Martin

We are always looking for new members who are interested in umpiring at any level we provide officials for. See our website for information on how you can become a member of one of the largest umpire organizations in the Pittsburgh area, or contact us.
