Softball players please read.. M/ilesports Policy
We are at the time of the year where umps are complaining about players and players are calling (some drinking) and saying the all-encompassing “the ump sucks” or the ump is an “a-hole”.
please remember- they league no argument rule..
After the play is over the argument is over – move on. You can be thrown out of a game for continuing to argue a call even if “it wasn’t directed to the ump”.
Do not argue or worse call about a judgement call .. The tie DOES not go to the runner.
The ump does not keep score. Make sure you keep a book and it matches up with the other team. If you can’t keep track of the score with a scorebook how can the ump without one?
NO INNING CAN START AFTER 7:10 OR 8:20 – NO EXCEPTIONS. NO MATTER HOW LIGHT IT IS OUT.
IF YOU HAVE 9 PLAYERS THE 10TH SPOT IS AN OUT – NO EXCEPTIONS
If an umpire is ignoring or making up rules let us know we’ll take care of it.
Otherwise follow the umpires directions. MLB umps miss calls and there are 4 of them.
