Uniting to Support & Respect Umpires and the Game We Love

KFMD0319.JPEG

Can we be real with you? Recently we received an email from Triple Crown Sports making clear their commitment for enforcing respect for umpires, and we applaud that wholeheartedly. The men and women in blue behind the plate and on the field calling the game we all love are often targets of abuse. You've heard it and seen it as we have. It's a problem.

Many umpires we've met have been players or coaches just like you, and most are parents just like you. Umpires do this work on the field because they love the game, just like us. We won't always agree with an umpire's decision, but let's always respect that the decision is theirs to make. Let it go and move on to the next play. Will you join us in supporting and respecting umpires across all of our venues? Let's hold each other accountable to that.

Rawlings Moment of the Month Winner for May 2019

Congratulations to HiCast User @Baby12 for being our Rawlings Moment of the Month for May 2019. About the moment: Richard Becher Memorial Tournament at Baseball Heaven on 5/19/19. It’s the 10U Championship game between Brooklyn Falcons vs. Madison Tigers. Two outs, two balls, and two strikes... runners on 2nd and 3rd. Joshua Diaz crushes it sending in teammates Christian and Ulysses to score, contributing to their big win!

HiCast Sports Network selects one winning moment from highlights shared in our app’s HiCast Feed each month all summer long. Winners score their pick from an incredible lineup of Rawlings Sporting Goods bats. Learn more our Rawlings Moment of the Month contest.

We're proud to announce that Rawlings Sporting Goods has joined our team as an Official Network Sponsor. What's in it for you? Awesome prizes, player tips, and great visibility for your Moments That Matter™! We'll award a Rawlings Moment of the Month starting this month and all summer long. Each monthly winner receives your pick from the Rawlings lineup of bats. Woo hoo! Check 'em out.

Who's eligible?
All HiCast Sports Network users. You must have a HiCast Sports account tied to a valid email address as this is how we'll communicate with you. If you don't respond to our winner notification email within 48 hours, we'll pick another winner, so be ready!

How do I enter?
Using your HiCast Sports account, tag, save and share your HiCast highlights (baseball or softball) to our app's HiCast Feed. We'll review all highlights and select winners from the HiCast Feed. Provide details like player's name(s), team name and age division in your caption as we'll ask for this information if you're selected as a winner.

Who gets the prize?
The HiCast User who shared the winning highlight in the HiCast Feed is the prize winner. The winner is welcome to gift the prize to the player featured in the highlight, but that's at the winner's discretion.

What's the monthly deadline?
We'll review highlights throughout the month up through the last day of each month. The date of your highlight share determines the month's eligibility. For example, if your highlight occurred on April 28th, but you shared the highlight to the HiCast Feed on May 1, your highlight is eligible to be a May winner. The monthly winner will be announced on the 11th of the following month. For example, our May eligibility will run through May 31st and we'll announce the winner on June 11.
