Umps Care Charities Launches Modified 2020 Auction

When COVID-19 shut down the sports world in March, it looked as if @UmpsCare Charities would have to shut down its annual Spring auction with no more umpire lunches and real world experiences to bid on.

Instead, UMPS CARE adapted, launching a rare September auction on with some coronavirus friendly modifications.

For instance, the usual in-person "Lunch with an Ump" item became a "Virtual Lunch" while retired MLB umpire Dale Scott pitched in with a most socially distant solution: a custom voicemail message.

UMPS CARE even threw in a nod to Close Call Sports and Gil's hockey career, what with a Mike Trout Mighty Ducks Bobblehead (no they didn't, it's entirely a coincidence).

Visit through September 17 to bid!
