Reminder & Updates

Hello Again Umpires,

Our site has been updated with better info about using Fuze to access the Clinics while many of you are out.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  We do expect all umpires to attend all required clinics, either in person or via the Fuze software.  The next clinic for 1st Year Umpires (or those who want to join) is Tuesday, April 15th.

Also, the Umpire Registration for this season is open.  So feel free to start filling in your scheduling and contact information.  It will need to be in before you will be scheduled for any games.

Have a good day!
-Grant
