We are getting phone calls every day about the 2010 Baseball Rules Differences, or as it's known everywhere, the BRD.

There will be no 2010 edition.

Let me explain why. The changes this year in National Federation rules were minimal. There were no changes for the OBR.

And the NCAA announced they were going to publish their rulebook in the odd years. Their next edition is 2011.

Research at Officiating . com continues, and we promise that the 2011 edition of my book will be the most accurate discussion ever of the myriad differences in the major baseball codes.

Referee magazine listed the BRD as one of the 40 essential sports officiating books. Your umpire library is really not complete without at least one edition of this book.

Pre-publication sales of the 28th edition begin next November in plenty of time for holiday shopping. Reserve your copy before 15 December, 2010, and we'll send an announcement on an individualized card you can open up along with your other presents Christmas morning..

Help us spread the word!

Referee magazine named the BRD one of the umpire's "essential" books. Even if you call by just one rulebook, the BRD will help you immensely.

If you've never had one, you're in for the treat of your career. If you're a long-time user, welcome back.

Tell your friends. Spread the word.
