Upcoming Deadlines:

  • August 1:  SDUA Scholarship Application.  Apply HERE.


  • MLB Rulebooks Update: The SDUA will NOT be purchasing and sending the 2022 MLB rule books.  The 2022 MLB rules were not ratified by the owners and players association until just recently.  This delay was because of the early-season lockout and the many new rules they are implementing/have implemented for this season.  The MLB rule books will not be printed until early July.  Based on our conversations with the publisher, we did not expect you to receive your rule books until approximately July 15th.  The SDUA Officers did not find it fiscally responsible to purchase rulebooks and mail them to you as the season is coming to an end.  The SDUA Officers did not take this decision lightly, since purchasing and shipping MLB rulebooks is the SDUA’s largest yearly expense.  Saving this cost will help us to keep annual dues low.  Once the 2022 rules are published, we will be sending out the 2022 rule changes so everyone is aware.  The SDUA appreciates your understanding.

  • Any and all player and/or coach ejections must be reported.  Complete the ejection report HERE.

  • If you have any suggestions on how to make the SDUA better for you and our members please let us know. Send any and all thoughts (good, bad, or otherwise) to an SDUA officer or your District Umpire.  We want to hear from you.
