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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
See other side for additional info
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.
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.
