Umpire Basics - 2023 Manual Coming Soon
The purpose of this booklet is to provide useful information about the art and skill of umpiring. It is mostly about umpire mechanics on 60' diamonds. It provides some information on mechanics for larger diamonds, rules, umpire gear, handling conflicts and other topics such as umpire philosophy.

Little League™ baseball and softball rules are covered in the Official Regulations and Playing Rules book. Umpire mechanics define how umpires move on the field. Proper mechanics is a skill that all umpires should try to learn from trained instructors as early as possible and throughout their career. To learn it requires training, practice, thoughtfulness, discipline and time. The information provided in this booklet is only a reference that supplements the mechanics taught at umpire training clinics by properly trained instructors.

Most typical games will have two umpires present. One home plate up, who is usually referred to as the Umpire in Chief (UIC) and a field umpire. As a field umpire, you will be moving to two to three different locations based on the location of the runners. This document provide a nice reference so you are standing in the right place in all situations.

If you get to umpire a game with 4 umpires, you will want to give this document a read. It covers where each umpire needs to be in all of the situations and who has which calls. If you are new to a 4 person crew, you should definitely read this before the game. You will be glad you did.
