Local umpire James C. Bettencourt has written a college baseball rules book. Bettencourt initially penned his high school baseball rules book "Baseball Rules in Black and White" last year, and now has added a college version to the fold. Bettencourt is also currently updating the high school edition, with a new version due out in 3 to 4 weeks. Bettencourt has been an umpire for 20 years and this new college rules book has been endorsed by many umpires from around the country. Bettencourt says he wrote the books to make the rules easier to understand for both umpires and fans alike.
