  1. Cooooold Weather

    Brutal today in Riverside 90 degrees. At least my partner pulled a 2:05 Plate job and got us out of there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. first college game

    My first game is Friday as well. But my drive is about 30 Miles. It should take me about 30 minutes to get to the game and 3 hours to get home.[emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah I worked a lot of Freeman last year. It paid off this year though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think where we are blessed the most is, The Serious Talent always is willing to give back to the ones that are still climbing the ladder.

  13. Rain, No Pay

    I do some Assigning and my standard rule is, if the game gets cancelled before the first pitch but less than 1 1/2 hours before the first pitch due to rain, field conditions etc. it is 1/2 game fee. If game is a forfeit or the coach books 2 sets of umpires then you get the full game fee. Before 1 1/2 hours you get nothing. Sometimes that means guys are already in the road to the field but it is what I have negotiated and most seem to be good with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Black and Blue clinics

    As I am staying at a Hyatt Place in Garland Tx, I am very glad of the upgrade to the new Hotel that the BBUC made. This is a great Hotel. I will be back for my 2nd year at the BBUC 3 man camp and can't say enough great things about it. Great camp, great instructors. And most of all great umpires to work with. If you are even thinking of attending, you should go. You will not be disappointed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. First Time UIC

    I have been a UIC for our local Pony League for the last 3 years. It has had its ups and downs but it has steadily improved. The best advice I can give you is, like the others have said, be a sounding board for the umpires. Let them handle the game as its being played out. Never interfere unless they ask you to and simply explain to them that this is their game and you will answer any and all questions f on the coaches and umpires after the game has finished. Also you will have to get rid of umpires. Unfortunately some will be jealous that you got the job and they didn't or they won't respect you. They won't think you are ready or that you are good enough. When I took over I had to can 20 of our 35 umpires my first season. But now I am back up to 35 and expect to have 40+ by the end of this year. Always make sure the umpires know you have their back. And last but certainly not least. Enjoy the game and your job. If you don't then it is not worth doing it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
