Ratings and Reviews
Is this another sleeper app that grew?
I'm thinking that these guys are on to something here. Its early days for sure, but if you follow their thinking, it could be one of many apps, over many sports, and hit out of the park. Great fun, good learning tool, there's no downside. Give it a try.
For baseball fans
Definitely worth checking out, not just for wannabe umps but general baseball enthusiasts. Like most fans, I've always loved the game, from playing to watching it and being able to learn about the many rules of baseball, especially some of the more obscure ones, helps me enjoy it that much more. Also, having a video explanation of the rules makes it easier to understand and the game format of the questions makes it, much like baseball itself, fun.
Really good idea. Would gladly pay money for it once they get their rules correct. Not a good sign when I can spot inaccuracies with their answers by the 5th question though.
Could see this being a great teaching tool at some point for new umpires.
