Volunteer Umpire Information

Being a Volunteer Umpire

Aside from calling ball or strike, safe or out, umpires are responsible for teaching players good sportsmanship and the rules of the game. Umpires are also called upon to interpret rules and help settle minor disputes that may occur during games.

Home Plate umpires and field umpires are often determined minutes before the game begins. As you arrive at your child’s game, your coach or the Team Manager may ask you to be either the home plate umpire or field umpire. When you agree, your main responsibilities are to call plays at home plate and on the bases, determine if balls are fair or foul, and assist the field umpire with other calls.
