STATE MEETING 2013Coaches and players in the dugouts.No coaches sitting outside on a bucket.Discreetly speak to head coach to help out.If players don’t respond to you have the head coach help out.No help rules help umpires with this situation with a restriction.Players go out of dugout during live play.Go ahead ask coach to help you out and issue a team warning (gently).Write on lineup card the warning, inning, outs, situation.Next time disqualify.If there are no coaches boxes and no on deck circles that are marked:Deal with this at home plate meeting or before (jv game).Ask politely once.If they refuse, no coaches can coach offensively outside of their dugouts (home and visitors).No on deck hitters outside of dugouts.Middle Schools we’ll treat differently. If they can’t do it, let them play and call me.Head Coach needs to have players line up bats and helmets outside of dugouts before games for inspections.This is how it’s done at state championship series.Players may only have one small strip of eye black under their eyes.Nothing else, no war paint.Coaches have player remove this before the game.On any given day I will assign the best available umpires to each available game.Umpires will be assigned to games that are at their umpiring level.Make sure coaches have signed in.All umpires have signed, printed and put the last four numbers of your social security numbers on sign in sheet.
