Welcome to the Jaksa/Roder Baseball Rules Course.
Writing the Jaksa/Roder Baseball Rules Course has been a trip down memory lane for me. Some of the greatest days of my life were spent instructing at Joe Brinkman's umpire school from 1988 thru 1996. I took over the classroom instruction in 1990 and we had some memorable times in Peter Ueberroth Hall. We made learning fun. We learned together. My 1,000-some students made innumerable contributions to the development of the Jaksa/Roder manual. Major League umpires and supervisors visiting the school chimed in with unique plays and intriguing insights. The extremely talented staff hashed over problem rules for hours at night. All of that has snowballed for me into fifteen years of baseball rules development and study. You stand to benefit from all of that with the Jaksa/Roder Baseball Rules Course. It contains some of the most important work ever done on the fascinating rules of this great game.
This is a full course on the rules of baseball, consistent and equivalent with the courses of instruction at baseball's highest levels-the professional baseball umpire schools. With the Jaksa/Roder Baseball Rules Course you will discover these added benefits:
When you have completed this course of study, you will be a different umpire on the field, charged with the confidence that comes with a thorough grounding in the rules.
