2018 Umpire Information

Umpire Manual:

We have added an umpire manual that reviews, in detail, many of the rules, interpretations, and procedures associated with umpiring baseball games.  This document will be updated regularly with new information.

Pay:

We are going to continue to use the Google form this year for turning in pay sheets.

PAY SHEETS ARE DUE MIDNIGHT OF THE DAY THAT YOU UMPIRED!

If you fail to turn in your paysheets, you will not get paid. This page can easily be bookmarked on your smartphone and you can fill it out when you arrive at the field to umpire, it takes 5 minutes.

In addition, we are going to try something new with pay this year. I will be “hand delivering” your checks to ensure that you receive them and they don’t get lost in the mail, delivered to the wrong address, etc. On SUNDAY OCTOBER 7TH AND NOVEMBER 4TH I will be sitting at the Corner Caffe from 12:00-3:00. You will be required to sign for your check.

Scheduling:

  • To try and accommodate everyone’s summer schedules we will be using SignUp Genius to schedule games.
  • Ben will have the schedules uploaded to SignUp Genius and will send it out to you when I have permission to do so.
  • You will get an email with a link to the SignUp, click on it and there will be tabs for each division along the top.
  • It is your responsibility to sit down with your schedule (preferably your parents too) and pick the games that you can COMMIT to umpiring.
  • Ben, Duane, and myself will get emails regarding who signed up for what game and when, if we feel as though you can not handle the game we have the right to remove you, so please only sign up for games that you know you can handle. (First year umpires can only do BCP and Kaline until you are told otherwise)
  • I have it set up so that you will receive an email 48 hours before your games, reminding you of your commitment.
  • There can be consequences if you cancel your games after the reminder has been sent, the “umpire committee” will make the decision.Any Questions:
