    Umpires (and fans maybe?) Helping Umpires

    As an umpire of many years (several just doing local rec games, to OHSAA certified, to getting in with a crew of almost all college umpires doing high-level tournaments), I rarely complain about other umpires. I know how hard the job is, and we don't have enough umpires to be trying to run...

    Growth Allowance for Previous Night Match

    My MS team is attending a tournament tonight and tomorrow (2 day bracket). We literally just got an email at 9:20am stating that "a team just informed us they wrestled last night so the growth allowance will be +3". Isn't there a bylaw that teams must be given 48 hours notice? The team knew...

    Baumspage Brackets?

    Am I going crazy? I went to lunch and checked Baumspage for brackets. At 12:30 they were updated through 170 in D1 via my I-phone. Got back to work and checked again and brackets are not updated for quarterfinals at all, for any division. Any reason I can see them on my phone but not on desktop?
