Baseball Rules on Tape?

Does anyone know of a MLB Rulebook "on tape"? I would like to find a place where I might be able to download the rule book as an MP3 file and then I could listen to the rules as I drive, commute, etc.

Thanks for the assistance.

Marty

Kinda like an audio book?

If so, I know of nothing of the such. However, to help you know and understand the rules, case plays, ect. I would recommend getting the MLBUM, Jacksa/Roder, and other item. Make your own. However, you may want to devise a script first. Organize your rules and case plays into: "Progression of the game" type topics. If you put some decent work into it, by organizing it and developing it into a teaching tool, you could sell it for $19.95 a copy. Burn it onto CD's with specific chapters covering certain aspects.

Potentially you could make some good money.

Take your "significant other" and have them read to you. Then reward them for their work.

What's it worth to you? I'll have a couple of weeks off starting March 26 and, if you don't mind a little medication induced slurred speech, I'll be happy to get to work on it. I figure I could record two rules a day and send them to you as installments.

Garth, this project would be a real service to seeing-impaired umpires the world over.

Do it yourself? All it takes is a comp, a microphone, and a rules reading session you should be doing anyways. Just read out loud instead of to yourself...
