    Umpire "IUA" patch? What's it stand for?

    Hey, guys,

    I was recently gifted a handful of baseball game slides from the 1940s/1950s. I am trying to identify a patch on the umpire's arm that might help me figure out where the game occurred (state) or what league it might be.

    I Googled "IUA baseball" and came up with "Indiana Umpires Association," but that organization did not form until 1973. The slide is definitely from a few decades before that.

    Any ideas?

    Ah. Okay. I wondered if it stood for "independent." I just couldn't find that organization on first hit.

    Thanks for the links.
