For the OBR book was completely revised and reorganized. I have updated to current numbers and sections in contrasting color. Beginning with the major rules differences in the NFHS rulebook which was originally one short page , I intially expanded this umpiring aid some time ago by adding rule excerpts to the simple list to assist high school umpires working baseball under the OBR.
