RussMatt Central Florida Invitational

Annually hosting more than 250 colleges in all divisions

A Preeminent Spring Destination


In August 2018, RussMatt Central Florida Invitational appointed UCU the Coordinator of Baseball Umpires for NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, NAIA, and JUCO.

Founded in 2004, RussMatt has forged a national NCAA baseball reputation as a preeminent spring destination hosting 1,000-plus games for more than 250 colleges annually in Division I, Division II, Division III, JUCO, and NAIA – that’s more college teams than all other Florida spring break tournaments combined!

This partnership gives UCU umpires a great opportunity to work games in Central Florida at the opening of the college baseball season during the months of February and March.

And, it provides UCU with the opportunity to evaluate current umpire staff as well as identify other talented umpires. This is a valuable asset in UCU’s umpire development program to have this ability to evaluate umpires early in the season.
