    Greetings!

    As we move further into the competitive and conference seasons, the caliber of baseball and the stakes riding on each game become even more significant. Players, coaches and even fans are more intense than ever. This is a good time to remind our umpires that our role must be focused and decisive but calm in response to the situations around us. A few reminders:

    --If you know the rules and the intent of the rules, you will never get into trouble when something strange happens.

    --Pause before responding to a coach or player.

    --Recognize when you have made a controversial call and permit reasonable reaction.  Do not immediately move into the “I am in charge of this game” mentality.

    --Keep discussion simple, be as brief as possible, address the problem or question but address inappropriate behavior first.

    --Always be a good listener and keep conversations concise. You should not try to impress coaches with your knowledge.

    --Understand a coaches frustration and acknowledge that this understanding can go a long way during a game.

    There could be many more of these coaching points. None of these are original but serve as great reminders for all of us. Commit to these attitudes before and during every game.

    Have a great month of April. Be proud to be a part of some of the great baseball being played. Remind yourself how lucky you are to be a major participant of this game. And don’t forget to have fun!

    All Umpires Please Note: The eligibility requirements for NCAA postseason selection - clinic attendance, passing of the rules test (85%), and the citizenship and background check authorization (for DI only) should currently all be credited with the green verification checkmark showing under the POSTSEASON tab of the website if requirement is satisfied.

    If there are discrepancies, please follow up immediately for resolution if desired.

    Thank you.
