Sample Umpire Cover Letter

An umpire cover letter lets the hiring manager know the applicant is familiar with the rules and strategy of the sport over which he will be officiating. All umpire cover letters should include specific information and reference to experience in order to set the applicants apart from others competing for the job.

Dear Mr. Christian:

Your posting on JobBankUSA.com for umpired caught my eye. I am looking for this work and would welcome being able to officiate at next season's baseball games for your community association.

I have lived and breathed baseball since I was a kid and served as an umpire and referee most of my life. Now that I live near your field and you are look for umpires for the coming season, I am applying for one of the openings.

Would you like to meet to talk over the position you are offering and to see if I meet your requirements? If so, please call me on my cell phone: 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter. I hope to hear from you soon.
