I want to encourage you to sign up for text messaging through Nations. The scores and pitching records will be updated as soon as the games are complete. Receiving text messages helps us correct any errors in scores and pitching immediately. The umpires will keep the score cards and the pitching records. Please check the card before leaving the field. All errors must be reported to me within 15 minutes of the next game time. If the umpire leaves the field without you checking the card, please feel free to stop by the office within that 15 minutes and take a look at it. The office is located between fields 3 and 4.
