13 RUNNER ON ANY BASE Fair/Foul Coverage

14 Pause Read React

15 Get in the Right Position AngleDistance (Angle & Distance)

16 If you cant get both Always take Angle Distance ( Angle over Distance )

17 Common Mistakes Too Close Following the ball to the glove Timing Not Reading the players actions Not adjusting to the play

18 Get Set Observe It Call It

19 Basic Umpire Mechanics We work from two primary set positions –Full set –Standing set These are used when observing any action that may result in a call

20 TIMING Don t Anticipate the call Make sure ALL playing action that may affect the call is completed Pause THEN Call it

21 Proper Position and Timing are the KEYS to making the right call

22 Umpire Signals Purpose of signaling is Communication

23 Umpire Signals Types of signals Calls and plays Among umpires

24 Umpire Signals Steps required Position Stance See the COMPLETE play Make a decision Proper timing Proper, crisp signal Verbal call

25 Umpire Signals playsWe use a relatively standard set of signals to communicate our calls for plays in the field –These are generally accompanied by verbal announcement of the call as well

26 Umpire Signals Ball Strike Fair Foul Safe Out Catch No Catch Time Infield Fly Delayed Dead Ball Foul Tip Off the base Play/Play ball Do not pitch Spectator interference Score the run Do NOT score the run Substitution Giving the Count

27 Umpire Communications (Among ourselves) We use a relatively standard set of signals to communicate among ourselves to relay information to each other –Most are non-verbal –Verbal is generally used only during a play

28 Umpire Communications (Among ourselves) Infield fly situation Outs (to your partner) Rotating (on a hit) Staying at Home Timing Play My call Getting help –Check Swing –On the bases Whats the count? Verbal Communication Acknowledging verbal communication
