NEW JERSEY STATE
FEDERATION OF UMPIRES
The New Jersey State Federation of Umpires, also known as the NJSFU, is a baseball and softball official's association based in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
The goal of the NJSFU is to develop and improve our member's knowledge, skills, confidence, and professionalism.
"The job of a professional baseball umpire requires quick thinking, common sense and confidence. When the ball is in play, the umpire sees the action, assesses the situation and makes the call - all in a matter of seconds. The successful umpire has a thorough knowledge of the rule book, is even-tempered, and is mentally strong enough to handle situations under stressful conditions. A professional umpire is expected to hustle, be alert, be in excellent physical condition and have a neat appearance," MiLB.
