Baseball Manitoba - Coach and Player Ejection Tracker

This year Baseball Manitoba is asking all umpires to report all ejections (minor or major) via an on-line form on the Baseball Manitoba website. Here is the link to use for the form: It can also be found by going to the Baseball Manitoba website, clicking “Umpires”, then “Resources”. The link is the first resource that comes up.


Please share this with all of your umpires so that they are aware.


Tracking the ejections will provide Baseball Manitoba with information on coaches or players that may be repeat offenders, while at the same time informing us of any umpire that may “over-eject” during the year. Leagues will still be responsible for any discipline related to ejections, unless it involves a physical contact altercation with an umpire, in which case Baseball Manitoba would be involved.  


Thank you,
