Umpire Training

Thunder Families,


2017 Umpire Training

Do you know anyone who would like to umpire baseball who is 14 years of age or older?

Do you love the game of baseball?

Would you like a fun, part-time job?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, maybe you are interested in becoming an amateur baseball umpire.


In conjunction with CABA Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Junior Baseball League, upcoming classes will be offered. Note: These are NOT individual classes but rather one class divided over several weekends. You cannot attend one weekend and be certified to umpire. ALL classes are required.

Bats for a Cure

July 15, 2017


Thunder Families and Community Members,


The Thunder Baseball Board of Directors would like to thank you for supporting Thunder Baseball League and our 6th Annual Susan G. Komen Colorado “Bats for a Cure” Tournament.  Our program is about promoting good character, developing young player’s skills in a positive manner and preparing for high school baseball and beyond.


We had a record two hundred sixty-six (266) baseball teams during our Susan G. Komen Colorado CABA Colorado “Bats for a Cure” Baseball Tournament on June 2-4, 2017.   All donations and specific portions of each team registration fees, shirt, socks, and hat sales are dedicated to Komen Colorado.  With this year’s additional donation, Thunder has donated over $100,000 year to date.


Shawn and Lynne Williamson will be presenting a check from Thunder Baseball League in the amount of $25,313.78; to the Komen Colorado BOD meeting in August. Praise to all our volunteers, teams, and families that supported this event. Donations from Beauty Counter, Catamount, Dicks Sporting Goods, Do Dye Hair Salon, Ford, Holloway family, Idea Works, Kona Ice Truck, My 7 West Food Truck, Rogue Wave Software, Shamrock Foods, Sill-Terhar Motors, Sportline, and all the teams that supplied items for the silent auction.  We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to help men and women of Colorado fight breast cancer.


Our mission is to help develop youth into active community members using sports as the vehicle.  To support this goal, we give back to the community by supporting Broomfield High School Sports Gala, giveSPORTS, A Precious Child, and Broomfield FISH.  We are providing financial support, scholarships, volunteers, and a collection location to drop off gently used sporting equipment.  With your ongoing support, Thunder Baseball will continue to grow and make a difference in the lives of youth and families in our community.  Thank you again for your generous contributions.



       Shawn M. Williamson

Executive Director
