Northboro Baseball Umpire Scheduling and Evaluation System
Starting in 2012, we ask that one caoch from each team in AA, AAA and LL Majors help us to improve the umpire program.
This system will provide immediate text messages to umpires whenever a game is cancelled or changed.
The system will also allow feedback of umpire performance from coaches so we can help umpires to improve and identify the best umpires for playoff assignments.

A message will appear telling you that the system administrator (Dave Gobron) will need to approve your registration and he will send you an e-mail when that is done. The e-mail will have your username and password.
Once approved, log back onto HorizonWebRef.com. You will need to change your password. Fill out some of the personal information - we really only need your cell phone number and permission to send you text messages. You will be asked for your team affiliation which you will select from the drop down menu.
On the day of the game you will get a reminder e-mail and text message. Go to your "Game Schedule" to see details. Sometimes games do not show on your schedule because the "Filter" does not include all dates. Make sure your filter allows you to see your entire schedule.
If you need to cancel the game, click on the cancel game icon, red circle with the line through it. This will automatically send a text message to the umpire(s).
After the game is played you will be asked ot rate the umpire(s). Click on "Rate the Umpires" message on your game schedule. Every game umpires will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Position (hustle)
- Communication with Players and/or Coaches
- Teamwork with Fellow Umpire
- Rules knowledge
- Umpire's awareness
- Attitude (enthusiasm)
- Consistency (throughout the game)
Evaluators will give a score of 1-10 for each category as well as an overall rating. You will also have the opportunity to provide comments. All umpire evaluation information will be sent only to the Umpire-in-Chief, and details will be kept confidential.
We will use the information to determine where umpires are performing well and what needs improving. We will also consider the ratings when assigning playoff games.
