Rum River Umpire Association will utilize HorizonWebRef for scheduling and assigning.  Umpires will get a link to register with HorizonWebRef when they sign up with Rum River Umpires.

Gear and uniforms are available from a number of retailers, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Scheels, Dave’s Sport Shop and others.  You may also be able to find used gear at a discount.

I want a 48 hour notice to find a replacement. If you can’t ump within 48 hours of game time, you MUST find your own replacement!! 

After the game, check out your rule book. If you can’t find the answer, contact me.

Links for fields can be found here. Check locations well in advance of game time.  Links are also available for all fields on HorizonWebRef.

  1. Before a game?
    Unless you are contacted by me or get a cancellation notice through HorizonWebRef, show up to the field. To get paid, a game must be “official” (3 ½ to 5 complete innings). If a team hasn’t arrived and/or hasn’t contacted me, you’ll receive 1/2 pay.
  2. During a game?
    Use your judgement. Lightning/thunder? Clear the field immediately for 1/2 hour!!
