WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENTS

May
10

Crew of Three Video
Umpires are encouraged to watch the Crew of Three video under the education tab after signing in to the KSHSAA website as an official. An email was sent about this. It will be key to making sure we are in the correct positions for the calls coming up next week.

Pregame Discussions
Umpires NEED to have a proper pregame discussion with their crew members before regional games start. Being on the same page is critical. Do not walk on the field without talking. No one is above working as a team.

Situation
B1 hits a long fly ball to right-center field. Running full speed, F8 catches the ball and takes two steps. She then hits the wall, causing the ball to fall to the ground. RULING: In all codes, this is not a catch. In order to make a catch, the release of the ball must be voluntary. The wall knocking the ball out of the glove is not voluntary. If the fielder reaches into the glove, pulls the ball out and then it falls, it would be voluntary and considered a catch.

Team Photo Team photos of regional winners will be needed by Noon the following day after qualifying.

Seeding date for 3A and 2-1A will be May 12. So, all games played through May 11 will be included in regional record. Please update your scores and schedules regularly. Seeding date for 4A, 5A and 6A will be May 15. So, all games played through May 14 will be included in regional record. Please update your scores and schedules regularly.
