The June Rules Review answers have been posted for your consideration.
A few points to note:
- There were a total of seven submissions, three less than the May Rules Review. This is less than 20% of the Association membership.
- There were zero submissions that answered all five scenarios correctly
From the HBUA Policy and Procedure Manual:
In the event of a game that must be replayed due to an overturned protest, the Assigner shall schedule the original umpire crew for the game. If the protest was overturned due to an incorrect rule application, the umpires shall not be paid for the replayed game. In the event the original crew is unavailable, the original umpire(s) shall forfeit the game fee to the replacement umpire(s).
Each question answered incorrectly on the Rule Review represents an oppourtunity to lose a protest. Remember, good umpiring means having a complete knowledge of, and proficiency in, all Official Baseball Rules, interpretations, policies and regulations. Please take the time to read some portion of the rule book each day.
