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.

TERMS TO REMEMBER
