Umpire partners must be contacted no less than 25 hours in advance to confirm games. Determine if you could meet and travel together and who will call plate and bases. If partner change has been made, the person added to the game will make the call. Failure to contact partner will b a penalty of $25.

In case of bad weather, it is your responsibility to call the school. Make sure that the person you are speaking to knows for sure the status of your game (speak to the coach if possible). Email me if your game is a rainout in order for me to coordinate  rescheduling. Your message should include date of game, location played and your name.

Game reports must be turned in to the assignor as quick as possible so he can sign and send to GHSA with required 24 hours of the incident.
