‘Umpires Media’ Launches Baseball Testing Platform at ABC Convention

, ,

The new digital platform enables coaches to test their team’s knowledge of the rules of baseball.

Jan. 6, 2018 — A new platform, The Umpires Media Baseball Rules Testing Platform, is the world’s first digital rulebook. The system, which enables baseball coaches and others to better understand the rules, was introduced this week at the annual conference of the American Baseball Coaches of America.

“Coaches, players, and fans often argue with umpires about calls. A better understanding of the rules can prevent commotion and confusion,” says Umpires Media founder David Yorke, a graduate of the Jim Evans Professional Umpiring Academy.

Umpires Media helps coaches and others to learn and test their understanding of the rules using a variety of tools, including video situations, multiple-choice tests, and video/audio questions-answers. Reviewing test scores identifies who needs to improve their knowledge of the rules.

The system enables testing up to 50-team members and includes fifty free Baseball Rules Explorer 1-year subscriptions – all for only $50/year. League managers can test 10 teams of 50 members for $250. Umpires associations can test 200 members for $100 (ABCA Show Specials). Umpires, leagues, and associations can use the platform to certify umpires on an annual basis.

Umpires Media is an educational supporter of USA Baseball. Video rules explanations will be offered throughout 2018 for web and social media engagement.

The bottom line is straightforward: Be informed. Know the rules!
