The Joe Driscoll Foundation has been established in memory of longtime CBUA Member & Past President and 3-time College World Series Umpire Joe Driscoll.

In 2007,  Joe died of a massive heart attack as he was preparing to leave for his game at Tufts University.

Joe was truly a legend in college baseball umpiring. His generosity and willingness to give back to the game he loved guided us to establish The Joe Driscoll Foundation in his memory.

Each year, the Joe Driscoll Foundation awards $2000 scholarships to students who are related to a member of our association.
