    I know... I was wrong.
  2. Missouri, you must work a minimum of 10 varsity games. Each district at each classification has an umpire draft for their tournaments and the teams in that district vote on who they want to umpire. I worked 2 different districts in two different classes last season.
  3. If I may also suggest getting a traveler's crease put in them. You will thank me later.
  4. Can't violate the CBA and reduce a team's roster size.

    The NCAA did not adopt this... the SEC did.

    NCAA Test

    I agree... The test wants you to place the runner on 3rd. My first attempt I kept the runner at 2nd... It was marked wrong. I sent the runner to 3rd on my 2nd attempt. I got it right. In an actual game, unless I'm 100% sure that R1 is going to reach 3rd safely, there is no way I am placing the runner on 3rd in this situation.

    They want you to give the runner 3rd
  8. Attached is the PBUC manual statement about the on deck batter
  9. I think that MLB would more likely have an MLBAM employee working on that end instead of paying a six figure salary to 15 more people to sit at a computer every 5th day.
  10. Nike has the NFL Uniform Contract... They don't make the officials uniforms. Nike does seem to make the NBA officials' uniforms. They aren't available for sale to the general public. If Nike does make the umpires' uniforms two things to be aware of. 1) They are most likely going to be Nike Branded Majestic cool base shirts, just like the player's uniforms are for the 2020 season. 2) They won't be available to the public.
  11. It was on both... I had these shirts as well when I first started umpiring.
  12. As it is often said on the FB groups... His answers are job security for others. Officiating to the path of least resistance is the bane of the profession and that is exactly what his statements are. "Screw being correct, I don't want to be seen as the bad guy."
  13. Answer the question before it is asked. It is simple.
