HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. – The Coastal Plain League has announced the umpires for the 2017 All-Star Home Run Derby and Game July 9-10 in Holly Springs, N.C. at Ting Stadium at the North Main Athletic Complex.

The six All-Star umpires will be Chandler Durham (Home Plate), Caleb Stone (First Base), Bryant Hodge (Second Base), Braxton Arndt (Third Base), Kai Nakamura (Left Field) and David Mayberry (Right Field.)

The six CPL umpires are the tenth group of umpires to come from the MiLB UD reserve list to work the Coastal Plain League All-Star Game. MiLB UD, a Minor League Baseball wholly owned subsidiary, has been partnered with the CPL since 2008, allowing umpires to continue developing their skills in a competitive environment, while waiting for the call from MiLB UD to sign a professional contract and move on to work Minor League Baseball games. Over 140 CPL umpires have moved onto the Minors in the nine years of the CPL-MiLB UD agreement.

“Minor League Baseball is extremely excited about our partnership with the Coastal Plain League,” said Minor League Umpire Development Director Dusty Dellinger. “We could not have a better environment for our future professional umpires to train and gain such valuable experience.”

MiLB UD is responsible for the training, evaluation and recommendation for promotion, retention or release of all umpires in the Minor League Baseball system throughout the United States and Canada.
