Please contact your association umpire assignor, your visiting coach and the GSBL immediately if any of your games are cancelled because of weather. Decisions should be made by 3:45pm, on the day of the game.

 

UMPIRE NO-SHOW PROCEDURE

 

The GSBL hopes to eliminate all “no-shows,” but we must also have a policy in the event you do have a “no-show.” Both Head Coaches must agree to one of the following:

   

  1. A) Give a 15-minute grace period for the umpire to show and call your designated umpire assignor if the umpire doesn’t arrive in that time.           
  1. B) Start the game with a mutually agreed upon substitute umpire. Substitute umpires will be compensated based on the number of innings they officiate (see No-Show Umpire Invoice).
  1. C) Do not play the game; attempt to reschedule.

 

Note:  Please communicate with the GSBL if a “no-show” occurs.  Substitute umpires will be paid for their services. The head coach must submit the No-Show Umpire Invoice within 48 hours of the game date to receive payment.

 

NOTE:  THIS UMPIRE “NO-SHOW” POLICY APPLYS TO ALL TEAMS

 

THE NO-SHOW INVOICE SUBMISSION ONLY APPLIES TO TEAMS THAT ARE USING MYAS/GOPHER STATE ASSIGNORS

UMPIRE ONLINE TRAINING CLINICS

Any and all umpires, regardless of age or experience, are welcomed and encouraged to attend one of the online training clinics. These are independent clinics and not a series. These clinics will include a background check, concussion training and a code of conduct. They will also ensure umpires the higher rate of pay for MYAS/Gopher State games. 

Clinic Topics:

  • Philosophy and Mental Approach
  • Game Management
  • Managing Coaches, Players and Fans
  • Proper Equipment and Gear
  • Umpire Mechanics

Clinicians:

  • Zachary Gustafson
    • Umpire for 25+ years
    • Everything from little league to college
    • MSHSL registered for 10 years and worked the state tournament
  • Tony Schrepfer
    • 30+ years experience: Youth, MSHSL, Legion, Men's Amateur, and College.
    • I also officiate College and HS Basketball and HS Soccer.
    • High school head baseball coach for 11 years.
