Default Official Baseball Rules Annotated By JE

I know that the current edition of Official Baseball Rules Annotated (In which I do have an orginal copy) of by JE is out of print, but is there any word about and updated version in the makings?
I know it took Jim about three years to do his two-man mechanics manual so this one may take longer it is so thick. I have to keep it secured because other umpires want to try an copy it, will not let it out of my site just for that reason.

I can tell you that I talked to Jim last December 2012 and he stated that he is working on an updated version.

He did not give me a date that it would be done.

I am sure you meant December 2011 sometimes our typing is so fast that we hit the wrong key but thanks for the update.

I would like to get a copy of this when it comes out.

Will it be featured on this site?

Hey Jim Evans;

any chance an electronic copy exists, that could then be made into an ebook for those of us who cannot find a hard copy?

Jim, please forgive me if you do not read these forums. Perhaps I am one degree away and someone you know will see this message and pass it along to you.

Play ball.

I do not know if he will publish it electroniclly. but I do have a hard copy of the one that is currently out of print and I guard it with my life, and never leaves my site and its kept locked up. I have reason for that and it is because I have had friends (fellow umpires) that have copied my other manuals because they were lazy to purchase them. but that is a good question maybe Jason will chime in on this.

We are definitely working on the update. The annotated has been something out of print for a long time. It's taken longer than we anticipated to get it back up to date. I've also looked into getting it into an electronic format, but again, it takes a great deal of time and resources. We're definitely working on it though!

Thanks for the interest.

J

Jason: Thanks for the reply and update. Surley will be keeping my eyes open so when it hits the store. The one that I do have It is my baseball reference manual along with the current MLB rules book and the JE Professional Baseball Rules Index.
