For which rule set? NCAA? NFHS? USSSA? NSA? There are a number of organizations that post their rule books on the web for download for free.

There are also others, such as USA Softball, Little League, and Babe Ruth, that are online but require being registered with the organization and/or a fee to download.

USA still only has a download available to phones, correct? I was happy to see the Umpire's Manual as a downloadable document. Would love the Rules Book to be as well.

Yes, at least that was the case for 2019, and they probably will do the same thing in 2020. It isn't really a PDF version of the actual rule book, like they did with the Umpire Manual. It's just a searchable app (and I've read that the search feature isn't very efficient since it won't search all chapters of the book).

That said, I truly don't understand the rationale behind requiring registered umpires to pay for the downloadable app. They already make us pay ridiculous amounts of money for their logoed shirts, hats, jackets and ball bags. I know it's "only" $14.99 for the app, but it's the principle that frustrates me. We get nickeled and dimed to register and go through a background check already. Do we really need to throw another $15 a year for a tool that other organizations (e.g., NFHS) provide as part of the registration fee?
