We are excited about the new season -- please visit the Home Plate Hub frequently to stay current on the latest Baseball Umpiring news and information.

Via the Home Plate page, you will be able to read the latest rules interpretations from the Secretary-Rules Editor, bulletins from the National Coordinator; review development -focused articles from conference coordinators, regional advisors and umpires; complete your requirements for postseason consideration, and review videos of recurring plays and how they are to be officiated.

Registration for the 2017 season is now available. To register, click the Registration Tab at the top of the page.  Please note there is an increase in this year's officials' registration fees, which are $140 for Division I and $120 for Divisions II and III.

New this year, the NCAA is initiating a basic level background check on all officials registered in the following NCAA sports:  Baseball, Softball, Water Polo, Wresting, and Ice Hockey.  Officials will authorize a background check as part of this year’s officials’ registration process.  The background check process that has been in place in previous seasons for championship level officials will continue.  Basic level background checks for the remaining NCAA sports will begin in the 2017-18 season. 

This year's Welcome Packet includes the 2017 CCA Baseball Umpires Manual; 2017 & 2018 NCAA Baseball Rule Book. 

The NCAA Preseason Rules test will be open on the Testing Tab, January 30, 2017 and remain open until February 14, 2017. The online rules video will be available on the Video Tab after the conclusion of the 2017 NCAA Regional Umpire Clinics. Searchable Rules are available by clicking on the Rules Book Tab.

Thank you for choosing to register with the NCAA; if you have any ideas or suggestions for improvement, please email me at

Have a fabulous season!

George M. Drouches
NCAA National Coordinator of Baseball Umpires
