2 THINGS TO REMEMBER GOING FOR HELP – when to go for help. Check swing –Call time –Step out to the side the partner is on, remove mask and with the left hand, point the partner and ask, DID SHE GO? –Partner responses verbally and with a signal Pulled foot Swipe tag

3 TERMS TO REMEMBER 90 DEGREE ANGLE (TAG) – the path of the runner into a base or tag not involving a base together with the umpire’s line of vision, form a 90 degree angle. 90 DEGREE ANGLE (THROW) – the location on force plays. The path of the ball (throw) to a base together with the umpire’s line of vision form a 90 degree angle. ALWAYS WORK FOR A 90 DEGREE ANGLE!

4 TERMS TO REMEMBER Ball status – this occurs between plays. One umpire MUST always be aware of the situation so runners never leave a base and violate leaving a base while the ball is in the circle being held by the pitcher. Once all play has ended, the plate umpire will signal for the base umpire to move to their next calling position. Once the base umpire reaches their next calling position, they signal to the plate umpire that they have the base runner(s) for leaving early before the next pitch. The plate umpire then moves into their position behind the catcher for the next pitch.

5 TERMS TO REMEMBER HOLDING POSITION – an area from which you can choose a position for an impending play or a variety of plays. A holding position is NEVER a calling position.

6 TERMS TO REMEMBER WORKING BETWEEN PITCHES - Preparatory movement toward a possible play after a pitch is not hit. If there is no immediate play to a base by the catcher on a pitch not hit, you should move toward a position for a possible delayed play on the lead runner

7 TERMS TO REMEMBER PRIMARY POSITION – the initial location assumed by an umpire. CALLING POSITION – the subsequent movement or adjustment, usually one or two steps from the PRIMARY POSITION. SECONDARY POSITION – the subsequent location assumed after the initial play or after a runner has obtained a base.
