April 2016....John Gallante is the President and Assignor of the Tri-State Elite Umpires Association.

Under John's watch, the TSEUA has grown from 15 members and 500 games to over 200 umpires and over 18,000 games, making the TSEUA the largest umpires association.in the state of New Jersey. The association has acquired baseball ranging from little-leaguers to semiprofessionals after striking a deal with South Jersey Men's Senior Baseball League in 2014. John also runs the cadet and advanced training program for the TSEUA, which is widely regarded as one of the best umpire training programs in the region. In addition to his duties with the TSEUA, John is also a state certified high school umpire for the Tri-County Umpires Association and serves as the Chairman of their mechanics training committee. John has taken the Tri-State area by storm and has become the "go to guy" for umpires in the area for all levels.
