Umpire salary and pay is always a popular topic. While pay is never the only reason people decide to become umpires it’s certainly an import part of working any job. We’ve covered umpire salary in previous posts but never in detail for the MiLB (Minor League Baseball). With further ado here is some pay information for Class A Short-Season & Rookie ball, Class A Full Season, Double-A, and Triple-A umpires.
The current regular-season salary ranges as of the 2012 seasons are:
Class A Short-Season: $1,900 – $2,100 / month
Rookie Ball: $1,900 – $2,100 / month
Double-A: $2,300 – $2,700 / month
Triple-A: $2,600 – $3,500 / month
One additional thing to keep in mind is that pay can increase due to the amount of time an umpire has worked in the league.
