ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Umpire School™ (TUS), which graduated its first class of students last month, has launched a new website at online. Some of the features of the new site include links to stories about TUS in the news, a photo gallery of this year's course, testimonials from some students from its inaugural class and information about the nine umpires in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

TUS is the only all-inclusive professional baseball umpire school with on-site field and classroom instruction, housing, dining and recreation. It will welcome its second class on Jan. 6, 2013, at Vero Beach Sports Village in Vero Beach, Fla. Professional Baseball Umpire Corp™ (PBUC) supervisors will instruct attendees of the four week course that will conclude on Feb. 3. PBUC oversees the training and employment of umpires in the Minor League Baseball™ system throughout the United States and Canada.

Detailed information about the 28-day course, including its curriculum, cost and available training packages, is also accessible on the website. Beginning early next month, anyone interested in attending the 2013 class can register via or by calling 877-799-UMPS (8677).
