Members,

First off, I’d like to thank all of those members who have paid their State and Local Dues, Thank you!  As the President of EPHSUA I would like to inform you of some personal news that will have no impact to you as a member for the upcoming season but you should be made aware of. 

I’d like to announce that I have been accepted into the Accelerated MBA Graduate program at the University of Texas – El Paso set to start this Spring.  My cohort will be meeting Mondays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 9:30 pm every week for the next 2 years.  Instead shifting what has become an El Paso Officials tradition of having general meetings on Monday, I have decided to keep them on Monday.

Your elected Vice President, George Clark, will conduct the meetings in my absence.  I will still be putting the meeting agendas and power points together so nothing is expected to change as far as our rules and training emphasis.  I have informed the board to assist George Clark to be sure nothing changes as far as how the meetings are conducted.  In addition to this we will be utilizing our recently purchased GoPro Camera to record every meeting and make them available for replay. 

As for the operations of the association I will continue to oversee all operations as I have done since my first day as President, so nothing is expected to change.

What I ask of you…

All I ask of you is to continue your professionalism on and off the fields, represent EPHSUA to the best of your abilities and keep up with the events calendar.

If at any time you have any questions or concerns with this announcement or anything else related to EPHSUA feel free to call, text, or email me.

First general meeting is Monday January 23, 2017 @ 7:00pm at the El Paso County Coliseum. 

Remember this association can only be as great as your efforts so let’s work hard to have a great season!!!!

Best regards,
Chris Ramirez, President

Membership,

I'd like to thank all 33 members who were in attendance last Monday.  As sent out by election committee chair, Art Martinez, the members of EPHSUA have decided to remain independent. In the coming weeks clarifications on the matters discussed will be added to the association website members only section as there are a lot of misinformed opinions circulating throughout the membership.  As your elected President it will be my personal goal to make each and every member better informed as you all already know I am a firm believer of transparency and Monday night enlightened me on additional items you all are interested in.

Looking forward, all applications for Assigner are due December 1st, 2016.  The board will be meeting December 3rd to decide on who the assigner will be for the 2017 season. 

For more information on important dates visit the association website.  www.ephsua.com

Best regards,

Chris Ramirez

**Note from Webmaster: Please see Board minutes from September 24th 2016 for motions that pertain to this message. 

 

Hello Membership,

On November 7th at 7:30pm at the El Paso County Coliseum, EPHSUA will be holding a special meeting.  During this meeting 2 individuals will be presenting on the benefits of joining TASO.  Please welcome these individuals with an open mind.  Once the 30 minute presentation is completed the Board has approved a vote take place amongst members in good standing to determine if EPHSUA will join TASO. 

As your elected President of EPHSUA it is my best interest to keep an open mind of the opportunities and support organizations available to us.  Joining TASO would greatly assist us in meeting our association objectives.  For some of you it is getting selected for the State Playoffs however for me personally it is seeing that our Members have the support and backing required in this day and age of officiating. 

If you would like to research TASO prior to Monday’s meeting please visit  http://www.taso.org/sports/baseball .

For those of you who plan on attending but have not paid your local dues.  Please do so prior to Monday’s meeting.  Only members in good standing will be allowed to vote.

Meeting Called to Order: by President at 6:05pm 
Approval of Minutes:  Motion to approve April 27, 2015 minutes.  Motion was 2nd.  Motion carried. 
Agenda Item #1:  Officers Reports

·    President:

o    Umpire selections may be held off until May 6, 2015.  Split crews are in consideration by playoff teams.  Coaches will make their selections for officials will take place at 9am.  Playoff games will be posted Wednesday evening.  Officials on the playoff roster need to contact assignor if they are unable to travel for out of town playoff games immediately.  6A schools will play out of town and 5A schools will play in town.  Due to lack of eligible officials playoffs for bi-district will use 2-man crews instead of the proposed 3-man crews.  Out of town crews will use 4-man mechanics.  Ysleta and Burges will play Friday, May 8 in a one game playoff.        
Next pay day is May 18, 2015.  Checks can be picked up at Smokey’s BBQ on Viscount.             
Bernie Del Hierro asks umpires that travel out of town to take a W-9 form as well as a pay form.  This will take care of getting paid for out of town games.  Officials are asked to write the names and contact number of person filling out the W-9 and pay form for payment purposes and to give to Bernie or the President upon return from out of town games.  Van Horn split was not resolved and should be discussed amongst the crew working those games.
Middle school have various time limit rules:

§  Clint MS:  90 minutes drop-dead during school week.  2 hours drop-dead on Saturdays. 
YISD:  90 minutes finish the inning.  6 runs scored in any half-inning will result in a switch-out of defense/offense.  Run rules are 15 after 3 innings and 10 after 5 innings.
Anthony/Fabens:  90 minutes drop-dead during school week.  2 hours drop-dead on Saturdays.

Agenda Item #2:  Unfinished Business

·    Rules Interpreter

o    Discussion of forfeits took place.  Officials were asked to use forfeits as the very last resort and to keep the game going using positive, yet enforcing game management.  Officials are to enforce the legal slide rule on a force play should a slide take place. 
Trash talking is to be stopped immediately.  Warnings should be seen and audible by both teams.  Document issuance of warnings so both teams/head coaches know you have made it clear of proper game management.  If a situations deems warranted an official may use appropriate judgment in ejecting a player/coach, i.e. pitcher throwing at a batter after both teams have been warned.  Suggested method to maintain control is to restrict teams to their dugouts and speak to head coaches about their role in controlling their players’ demeanor.  Send the message that no further misconduct will be tolerated.    


Art Martinez: 

o    Elections:

§   Chris Ramirez was elected as the new President of EPHSUA.  Arthur Loyda retains his position as Vice-President.
Raul Apodaca was elected as the new Secretary of EPHSUA. 
Robert Flores, Richard ‘Tokyo’ Salazar, and Wes Johnson were elected Board members at-large for positions #1, #3, and #5.

Agenda Item #2:  Unfinished Business

·  JJ Garrocho:

o    Ground rules.  Coaches can designate what ground rules to be considered, but umpires should determine what constitutes dead ball area(s) and the enforcement of such ground rules. 
Perception carries weight.  Overly conversing with one coach can lead to a certain perception between that umpire and the coach.  Strive to be neutral on the field. 
Umpires should handle confrontations with a player/coach one-on-one.  If a warning is issued and player/coach continues to argue/confront umpire discretion to restrict or eject.  If the player/coach uses “you” in their argument it is grounds for ejection. 
Asking for help is a matter of having missing information that you can provide your partner or vice versa for correcting a call.

Feb 4 2015

To all,
There is a lot of information to cover. 

·    Burges HS and The Base will be the locations of the clinic.

o    Burges: 7800 Edgemere Way
 The Base: 6801 Commerce Ave #7b


Saturday’s clinic is scheduled to begin at 8:15am in the Burges cafeteria.  Please be prompt.  It is scheduled to end around 1:30pm. 
Anyone 100% sure they are NOT going to be in attendance shall email the secretary, Matthew Banales, by Friday, 5pm.  An accurate head count will make the trainer’s job more efficient.  
A waiver to participate at The Base is required and need to be filled out upon entering the Burges cafeteria.  You will keep this waiver and hand it to the trainers at The Base. 
Exit Tickets will be given as you enter the cafeteria.  Do not lose this as it will be your proof of attendance at both sites for the completion of the clinic.  You will give your Exit Ticket to the trainers at the afternoon site that you are at. 
Bring your BLACK jersey uniform tops as there may be a picture taken to be posted on the website.
Bring your full gear.  You will be wearing your chest protector and shin guards over your clothing for quick change-outs. 
Attire is charcoal pants, black t-shirt, and EPHSUA hat.
Members will be split into 2 groups; 1 at The Base, 1 at Burges Field.  

o    Around 10:45am there will a transition of the groups from each site.  We are working to finalize providing lunch at each site as you transition.   Travel time is no more than 10 minutes with traffic. 
 Those attending The Base in the morning may want to consider carpooling as there is limited parking on Commerce Ave.  The afternoon group heading to The Base may want to take their vehicles, if they are not purchasing from Stripes Plus. 


Tony Cabrera from Stripes Plus Sports is scheduled to be at the clinic around 1:30pm at Burges.  Exact location is TBD, it may be the cafeteria or parking lot as he does have many items to carry and account for.  I think he has a CC reader, but not sure if is in working order, so bring other forms of payment just in case.

o    Those wishing to purchase from Tony in the afternoon that started at Burges field and heading to The Base may want to consider carpooling with those in your group also wishing to purchase items.  This may alleviate the limited parking issue on Commerce Ave.  This will also allow you to pick up your vehicle at Burges at the end of the day. 


If anyone knows of a former player (such as your son, a friend’s son…) who is willing to be a catcher at The Base for a few hours would be a help to us.  They would need to fill out a waiver as well and if they are under 18 they would need a parent/guardian signature.  Let one of the trainers know if this is feasible by Friday,5pm.

o     If there are no catchers available we will be doing the catching.  Gloves will be provided for our members.  If you have a catcher’s mitt please bring it. 


Our time is limited throughout the training day, so please adhere to sticking to protocol as mentioned in the presentation on Saturday. 
We are all professionals and here to work on our profession.  Please conduct yourself in a professional manner. 
If an item was omitted there will be a follow-up email.  Until then rest up and we will see you Saturday.
