On the Field

NASO member Jim Sabo snapped this pic of his partner, plate umpire Cesare Florio (also an NASO member) before the New Fairfield versus Bunnel high school baseball game in New Fairfield, Conn., this past spring.  “It was a beautiful spring evening,” said Sabo.”A county fair was going on adjacent to the stadium and the lights, sounds and smells wafted into the park. It doesn't get much better!”

spotlight We're All in This Together

Has your state passed laws pertaining to assaults on officials, officials’ liability or independent contractor status? Those three issues impact sports officials a lot. And many states have realized the importance of addressing those topics. NASO has been bringing attention to assault, liability and independent contractor issues for years. We’ve updated our annual Legislative Scorecard map again for 2015. It displays the states that have passed laws dealing with those issues. There are currently 21 states that have officiating assault laws (including 19 with criminal laws and two with civil statutes), 16 with limited liability legislation and 14 states with independent contractor laws. How does your state score? If there is work to be done, consider getting involved. Read more HERE
