No snow here but plenty of rain.  2 games rained out this week.

Just got my first paid games assigned. Varsity double-header on Monday. Working the bases both games, with the same partner. :confused:

I'm guessing they are expecting you to switch. I've had it out here with the same set up. And it's just to much of a pain in the ass to go in and change it.

I'm sure, too. This is also the first organization that actually assigns us positions. My old one just assigned everyone as "Umpire" and we figured it out.

I'll be emailing the assignor to make sure this wasn't on purpose. Can't see that it was, but I'll ask him before I ask my partner if he wants to switch.

All the associations I worked for in California assigned positions. As did the college and high school unit here in Portland. My current group in Vancouver does not. And I find it confusing! Lol

Heard back from the assignor. Unless he purposely gives you different positions, he doesn't care what we work. There are times, though, that he puts you in specific places (maybe wants the stronger umpire on the plate for a specific game, or if you're working both games of a double header with different partners, you get to work the bases for both).

Interesting.

The new assignor here now is putting Umpire #1 and Umpire #2. Was hoping it was position assignments. But it isnt. Just the first and second umpires picked for the game.

Well, just checked the 5 day forecast.  Looks like a high of 47 degrees during my HS season opener Friday.

I'm 3 for 3 thus far, rain-out, cold-out and snow-out.  Maybe tomorrow brings better luck? :insertevillaughhere:
