Schedules are updated on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis.
A reminder from Dan Vander Myde. I too umpire so if you try to reach me during a game, I may not respond. As soon as I receive game updates, I post them on this website.
THUNDER OR LIGHTENING
This rule is for all leagues and all divisions and is not optional
a. Games will be stopped immediately if lightening is seen or thunder is heard from the field. In the event the game is being played at a complex of multiple fields, any game being canceled because of dangerous weather conditions shall be considered grounds to stop all games. You must wait 20 minutes before allowing play to resume. If there is another clap of thunder or lightening is seen again, the clock is restarted. If it happens a third time, the game or games are cancelled and everyone must leave the field.
b. Should the National Weather Service issue a Severe Thunderstorm Warning or Tornado Warning for our area, all games in progress shall be stopped and all scheduled games during the duration of the warning shall be postponed.
ASA Concussion law is now in effect
A new Michigan Law went into effect on June 30, 2013 called “Heads Up Concussion.” MASA is proactive and we are requiring all of our umpires that will be umpiring youth games to take the Concussion Training. There is no cost for this training. Please go to one of the following Web sites: http://nfhslearn.com/electiveDetail.aspx?courseID=38000
Once completed, the certificate needs to be printed and sent to the MASA State office. Michigan State Law requires us to keep these certificates on file.
You only have to do this training once in your lifetime. If you have completed the training previously, send us a copy of the certificate. The certificate will remain on file with MASA as long as you remain an active umpire.
THERE IS A NEW HAND OUT CALLED UMPIRE PAY. IT TELLS YOU HOW SPECIFIC ORGANIZATIONS PAY UMPIRES FOR GAMES WORKED. CHECK IT OUT.
In the event that you work a game and your pay is not at the field, please email Dan at WestMIASA@Gmail.com.
Indicate the game date, league, time and location and how much you should have received.
