  1. 2-umpire mechanics

  2. Teams Required for aBaseball Game

  3. Playing is a factor of TIME Umpiring is a factor of ANGLES Playing vs Umpiring

  4. There are only TWO of you out there Communication Responsibilities for Runner/Ball Going Out Plate Umpire “Fill the Hole” Stay ahead of the lead runner Never abandon a trailing runner Basic Principles

  5. Keep Your Chest to the Ball(“Open the Gate”)

  6. U1 does not “go out” to rule on a fly ball when in “B” or “C” Certain circumstances may require that he go out to make a proper ruling AFTER a catch/no catch attempt or other play Base Umpire“Crossing the Dirt”

  7. BASE UMPIRE POSITIONS B C A Working Area

  8. Only when in Position “A” As pitcher starts his motion Come SET Observe what happens at the plate Stepping into the Pitch

  9. Primary Responsibilityfor Tagups and Touches

  10. NO RUNNERS ON Fly Ball Coverage Outfield

  11. RUNNERS ON ANY BASE Fly Ball Coverage OUTFIELD

  12. NO RUNNERS ON Fly Ball Coverage Infield

  13. RUNNERS ON ANY BASE Fly Ball Coverage INFIELD

  14. NO RUNNERS ON Fair/Foul Coverage

  15. RUNNER ON ANY BASE Fair/Foul Coverage

  16. Pause Read React

  17. Get in the Right Position (Angle & Distance)

  18. If you can’t get both Always take (Angle over Distance)

  19. Too Close Following the ball to the glove Timing Not “Reading” the player’s actions Not adjusting to the play Common Mistakes

  20. Get Set Observe It Call It

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

  22. Don’t Anticipate the call Make sure ALL playing action that may affect the call is completed Pause THEN ----- Call it TIMING

  23. Proper Position andTiming are theKEYS to making the right call

  24. Purpose of signaling is Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Communication Umpire Signals

  25. Calls and plays Among umpires Umpire SignalsTypes of signals

  26. Position Stance See the COMPLETE play Make a decision Proper timing Proper, crisp signal Verbal call Umpire SignalsSteps required

  27. We 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 Umpire Signals

  28. Umpire Signals B all 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

  29. 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 Umpire Communications(Among ourselves)

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

  31. MECHANICS for TWO UMPIRES

  32. NO RUNNERS ON Umpire Positioning

  33. NO RUNNERS ON Fly Ball – Left Field

  34. NO RUNNERS ON Fly to Right Field Possible foul Or “trouble” ball

  35. NO RUNNERS ON Fly to Right Field “Can of Corn”

  36. NO RUNNERS ON Base Hit to the Outfield Pivot

  37. NO RUNNERS ON Base Hit to the Outfield No Pivot

  38. NO RUNNERS ON Hit to the Infield

  39. NO RUNNERS ON Hit to the Infield Overthrow

  40. NO RUNNERS ON Hit to the Infield Near First Base

  41. NO RUNNERS ON Hit to the Infield Near First Base

  42. NO RUNNERS ON Foul Popup Beyond First Base

  43. NO RUNNERS ON Popup Behind First Base Fair/Foul ??

  44. NO RUNNERS ON Popup Immediately Behind First Base Fair/Foul ??

  45. RUNNER ON FIRST Umpire Positions B

  46. Pickoff Play At First

  47. RUNNER ON FIRST Fly Ball to LEFT field NO CATCH

  48. RUNNER ON FIRST Fly Ball to LEFT field CATCH - Return

  49. RUNNER ON FIRST Fly Ball to LEFT field CATCH - Run

  50. RUNNER ON FIRST Fly Ball to RIGHT field NO CATCH
