4  Don’t want 2 umpires covering the same play  1 Play / 1 Umpire  Plate Umpire – Home  Base Umpire – 1B and 2B  Runner from 1B to 3B – either Base/Plate Ump  Pre-game conference to discuss this situation K eep I t S imple, S tupid!

5  Leave your ego at home  Umpire out of position can get help if he asks  Ask for help before you make the call  Create credibility for yourself  Mistakes happen  Don’t rush to make a call

6  Did I arrive in time to prepare for the game?  Was I in position for every call?  Was I properly prepared for each play?  Working the plate:  Was my strike zone consistent?  How was my timing?  Were my signals clear and sharp?  Did I assist and communicate with my partner?  Did I keep my cool?  Is there any other part of my game that needs work?

7 Bill Klem The Father of Baseball Umpires "That guy in a twenty-five cent bleacher seat is as much entitled to know a call as the guy in the boxes. He can see my arm signal even if he can't hear my voice."

10  Positioning behind the catcher  Box stance (heel-to-toe)  Scissors  Kneeling

11  Positioning behind the catcher  Chin no lower than the top of the catcher’s head  Get into “The Slot”  Turn head toward the glove slightly

12

13

14 “The Thoughtful Pause”

15  See It  Say It (to yourself)  Call It

16 Working the plate

17 A strike is a legal pitch that is not struck at when any part of the ball passes through any part of the strike zone.

18

19 The strike zone is the space over home plate that is between the batter’s armpits and the top of the knees when the batter assumes a natural stance. The umpire shall determine the strike zone according to the batter’s usual stance when that batter swings at a pitch.

20

21 Rule 6.03 Which of the foot positions are legal?

22 Rule 6.03 The batter’s legal position shall be with both feet within the batter’s box.

23 Plate mechanics – Passed Balls and Wild Pitches

24  A foul tip is a batted ball that  Is sharp and direct from the bat to the catcher’s hand or mitt  Must be caught by the catcher  not a catch if it is caught on a rebound unless it first hits the catcher’s hand or mitt  Is a strike  Ball remains alive

25

26  Home plate umpire has responsibility for fly balls  Umpire takes off his mask  Walks into the infield  Signals for catch or no catch and verbalizes catch or no catch

27 Catch / No catch

28  Secure possession  Complete control of the ball  Voluntary release of the ball

29  CATCH – if the ball is dropped in the act of throwing  NO CATCH – if the ball is dropped as a result of a collision or falling  NO CATCH – if the ball touches an offensive player, the ground or fence, or an umpire

30

31 Fair / Foul

32  A fair ball is a batted ball that:  Settles or is touched on or over fair territory between home and 1B or home and 3B  Bounds past 1B or 3B on or over fair territory  While on or over fair territory touches the attached equipment or clothing of a player or umpire  While over fair territory, passes out of the playing field

33  A batted ball settles on home plate. What is your call? FAIR or FOUL

34  A batted ball settles on home plate. What is your call? FAIR

35  A batted ball first hits foul ground and without touching any foreign object, rolls into fair territory between 1B and home where it comes to rest. What is your call? FAIR or FOUL

36  A batted ball first hits foul ground and without touching any foreign object, rolls into fair territory between 1B and home where it comes to rest. What is your call? FAIR

37 FAIR or FOUL

41  Positioning + Timing = Good Judgment  Angle First, Then Distance If you have to, sacrifice distance for angle  Get Set – Be stopped for all plays  Watch the ball, Glance at the Runners  Timing, timing, timing  Hustle, hustle, hustle

42  Position  Lower your seat; don’t just bend over  Place hands on knees or thighs  Keep your head up; don’t drop your chin  Getting Set  Set position assumed BEFORE every pitch  Set position assumed BEFORE calling most plays  May be situations that mandate a standing “set”

72

73  Line Up  P1  P2  P3 – last out of previous inning  P4  P5  P6  P7  P8  P9

74  Expected Line Up  P4  P5  P6

75  P6 at the plate  2B / 2S  Appeal is made that P6 is not the proper batter BEFORE he completes his time at bat -or-  Offense manager realizes the mistake

76  P4 replaces P6 at the plate and assumes the count  2B / 2S

77  P6 at the plate  Singles into RF  Appeal is made that P6 is not the proper batter AFTER he completes his time at bat

78  P4 (the proper batter) is called out  Remove P6 from the base  Base runner’s advances due to the actions of the improper batter (P6) are nullified  Other advances are legal (steals)  Next batter is the batter whose name follows that of the proper batter (P5)

79  P1 leads off  Singles into RF  P5 steps up to the plate  2B / 2S  Appeal is made that P1 was not the proper batter AFTER P5 receives at least 1 pitch
