*Indicates an active Minor League Baseball Umpire (2014 season league in parentheses). MiLB officials are invited to work winter leagues for further evaluation and observation by PBUC (AA and below) and MLB (AAA) umpiring department staff for promotion and utilization consideration. For instance, many active full-time MLB umpires previously worked the Arizona Fall League enroute to their call-up and eventual permanent MLBU status.

Note that in the case of the Caribbean and Latin American leagues (and the Australian Baseball League), local umpires comprise a portion of the staff.
