• Request evals during the week when possible…
 – Remember, everyone works weekends!
• Check your schedule…
 – Many times, you may be scheduled to work w/ an evaluator!
• This is a year round program…
 – Spring, Summer, CABA, Fall!!!
• The evaluation program does not affect the assigning
  process
 – It does however, make you a better umpire!!!
