Default Rating time!

I think I had an excellent year I'm excited to see how are ratings come out, Do most associations do their ratings based on the High School season or do they include summer ball?

My HS association is rated by the coaches. There is no way around it. They are required to rate every official for every game. If a coach gets dumped, his rating will be thrown out. I think if I looked at all the ratings and nothing else, I could come very close to the final team standings. Most of us just ignore them. I only care about the rating my partner gives me.

Then I think I'd have two ejections every night.

It would make for a lively plate meeting.

I've gotten one at the plate meeting before...but not two. The thought of that almost gives me goose bumps.
