Something New for 2012 Fall Season
      The special score reporting line with a maximum of 40 voice mail messages has served us well,
             however with now 132 fall teams calling scores we need to and have expanded.

       We have added a special email address just for score reporting. It is not to be used for any
             other purpose. If you are responsible for reporting your teams scores and prefer email
             or the voice mail box is full, please use this alternative way of reporting scores.

       Special Email for Scores:

Instructions to Scorekeepers and Teams
       Both Teams - Home or Away - Winning or Losing
                Report the score of the game to the proper number - same day that the game is played if
               you want the scores and standings to be current
               If game is rained out or called prior to being official, please report that fact also

Cancellation of Umpires
      Home team must call when the decision is made to cancel but no later than 90 minutes prior to
              game time to cancel umpires.
      Calls made after 90 minutes - Every effort will be made to contact the umpires but you are
              responsible for paying appearance fee should they not be reached and show for game.

Web Page
     Will be updated with scores, standings, and makeup dates by Tues noon of each week.
     Please let me know of any errors that you notice as extreme care is given to accuracy.

Rescheduling Games
      As soon as the 2 teams agree or the league dictates and a date is agreed upon, home team
      should call and advise me of the need for umpires. Give as much notice as possible but be sure
      the date is firm with both teams. Please give me the previous date the game was scheduled
      when calling. Email if you wish ( I check it all the time) and I’ll confirm receipt of message.

Umpire in Chief
     Each league will maintain its own umpire in chief for rules interpretation, conduct codes,
     proper uniform codes, approved list of qualified umpires, etc. The above named group will
     follow instructions from each league and only acts as an administrative scheduler. It will assist
     in all matters of improper conduct by all players, coaches, teams and umpires. Please also
     remember, your umpires are contracted to do balls, strikes, safe and out and 7 innings and are
     not your administrative league’s administrative directors. They do not know your league’s
     special rules - that is the responsibility of each team manager.
