Umpire Mechanics on CD-ROM (Softball)
- Interactive Umpire Mechanics on CD-ROM with Searchable NCAA Rule Book
Softball umpires who want to improve their skills will welcome this multimedia CD training tool developed by the epic software group. The College Umpire Multimedia Mechanics CD includes animations for two and three umpire system mechanics edited and revised by Jeff Hansen the National Coordinator for the NCAA Softball Umpire Program and represent the preferred umpiring techniques for college play. What makes this CD a “must have” for serious umpires at all skill levels is the addition of 3D graphics, animated trails that allow you to trace the umpires every move, and a “step-by-step” mode lets you analyze the play frame-by-frame. The CD also includes a searchable copy of the NCAA Softball Rules Book. In the Bonus section of the CD is a handy 23 page reference guide showing the rules differences between the various Softball Organizations. An animated signal chart demonstrates proper technique for an umpire use while making calls.
The College Umpire Multimedia Mechanics CD was announced earlier in the year by Jeff Hansen’s the NCAA National Softball Umpire Coordinator during his annual internet clinic. Hansen’s objective is to educate collegiate umpires about the mechanics, philosophy and the positioning systems that are used in championship play. “This training aid represents the best opportunity for college conferences and their umpires to standardize the way they officiate the game of softball” said Hansen.
To develop this CD, the artists, animators and programmers at the epic software group worked with some of the best college umpires in the country” said Vic Cherubini, President of epic. “These umpires donated their time and expertise to help us create the CD purely for the love of the game.
