Baseball Rules Academy is a must-see & must read resource for every big league broadcaster and really any MLB fan who is a stickler for the rules and/or umpiring. The rulebook is dense and at times incredibly confusing, but Chris Welsh and Ted Barrett will walk you through the most complicated scenarios with ease and clarity. I couldn’t live without it during the summer!

I feel it is important to know the rules so I use baseballrulesacademy.com all the time. It is fast and easy to look up any rule. I especially love the frequent rules updates.
Baseball Rules Academy is a trusted resource for me as an MLB announcer. It’s a great way to expand my knowledge, and application, of the rules; and a fantastic tool to use in real-time when rules question comes up during a broadcast. I use it everyday.
Baseball Rules Academy is a must visit website for every passionate baseball fan. I’ve been a Manager in MLB for 16 years and for the last 3 years I found the Baseball Rules Academy a valuable research site for our staff and players.
There is nothing worse for an announcer than having to say “I don’t know” when it comes to the rules of the game. The Baseball Rules Academy site has saved me more than once! When there is a controversial play, it is almost impossible to thumb thru the rule book and find what you need while you are on the air. Instead, just go to the site and type into the search box the rule in question to find what you need without interrupting the flow of the broadcast. Also, make sure to take the rules quizzes on the site as a refresher to keep your rules knowledge strong. I highly recommend Baseball Rules Academy for all broadcasters.
