A Word from the President, 2020-2021

          "As we prepare for what we hope to be a full season of baseball for 2021, please keep in mind those we have lost and those who have suffered, both directly and indirectly from the pandemic.   You and your families will remain in our thoughts and prayers when we take the field this year.  I want to thank all of you who have remained loyal to Brush Country and have worked hard to overcome so many challenges over the last year.  You have sown the seeds of success and healing as we move forward into the 2021 season.  Once again, I can't begin to say how proud I am to be a part of a great group of people, not just umpires.  May God watch over us and keep us safe throughout the coming season."


Many thanks and regards,

Robert Redding
