About Us

Cornbeltbaseball.com is the result of a conversation among a few umpires who saw that many summer teams were having difficulty finding and managing umpires.  We figured we could consolidate much of this information into one place to help in this annual process.

However, it’s turned into much more.  Utilizing the experience of several local baseball nuts, we decided to make this as close as possible to a one-stop shop for everything baseball in Bloomington-Normal and surrounding areas.

Currently, our primary staff is as follows:

Jack Warren, editor

Jack and Brian McRaeFormer coach, current umpire.  You may see him on the field any time from March to October.  He loves the game and loves to share this passion.  Jack’s current favorite pastime is coming up with a big idea and then asking Tom Jackson to do it.  He’s always looking for new ideas, photos, and other folks who might like to share their love of the game through their writings or other contributions.  Contact him at jack at cornbeltbaseball.com* with any tips or suggestions.

Tom Jackson, columnist
