  10. Clinic and Rules Interp. • What you want out of clinic • Mechanics • Pre game • Game management • Line-up Cards • Rules • Courtesy Runner • Batting Out of Order • DP/Flex • Look Back Rule • Obstruction / Interference • Positioning • Field Coverage BREAK

  11. Your Feedback • Please go over DP/Flex.. • As the UIC, maybe the top five most misinterpreted rules that we must be known because of the frequency that they occur. • B and C position review. Mechanics of working together and "getting it right." • Coaches interference with runner rounding 3rd base. • Illegal Pitching- Crow Hop, Leap and Re-planting( we as umpires are not calling these pitches) • Illegal Bats- What we as Umpires should be looking for • Positioning of field ump w/runners on base. Going out to cover fly balls to the outfield. Communicating w/fellow umpires.

  12. Cover pitching rules---illegal pitches--footwork etc. with demonstration . Illegal substitutions and when coaches get options • pitching regulations. what constitutes an illegal pitch? coverage of 3B • Not having the UIC bailing you out of a bad call. Work it out on the field with your partner that is doing the game with you. It makes all look bad. Not saying strike three, you are out. Wrong mechanics • Emphasis on rules is constantly discussed, however I hear the same old stories; ie, The umpires in the last game or two did not enforce that rule, why are you! All umpires need to be enforcing the rules alike. It makes it tougher on the next guy if you don't do your job. I realize I have no control over how well coaches understand rules, but when you pay so much to play in the tournaments it's the least you could do.

  13. I am very interested in general coverage/mechanics with the two man system. We have some umpires that do not move enough especially from behind home plate. • Early arrival of Umpires to Tournament Site(s). Some umpires arrive late and the partner is unsure to take Plate or Bases. Parking in different areas away from field is a problem. Be a responsible umpire. Supplying an Umpire Roster with phone numbers, home and cell to contact the night before would be greatly appreciated. • METAL SPIKES WE HAVE TO DO A BETTER JOB CHECKING THEM ON THE LOWER LEVEL'S, AND DRESS CODE. • 1. obstruction - when to award/or not award a base to a runner, after being knocked down, returns to the base they started from because after the obstruction they believe they can't make the base they wanted to advance to. 2. proper ways for a pitcher to step off the rubber once their hands come together. 3. crow hops - if the back foot hits first - after leaving the rubber - is it always a crow hop?

  14. Pre-game with PartnerReview of Rules • DP/Flex Rule • AP Rule • Courtesy Runner • Charged Conferences • Pitching Rule • Appeal Process • Time Limit • Tie Breaker

  15. Pre-game with PartnerField Coverage • Batter Runner Going to Third • Steals • Pick off Attempts • Tag-ups • Base Umpire Leaving Infield • Check Swings • Pulled Foot at 1st Base • Batter Runner Tag Before 1st Base • Run Downs • Look Back Rule Coverage

  16. Inspect Field • Check Bases • Check Foul Lines • Look for Holes in Backstop • Look for Holes in Outfield Fence • Look for Loose Debris on Field • Inspect Condition of Infield • Determine Ground Rules

  17. Inspect line up cards Can use DP/Flex + 2 AP’s First AND Last names Subs listed Give back for final check Ask Coach Are all players equipped and in compliance with USSSA rules? Ground Rules Keep simple / Enforceable Quickly remind coaches Courtesy runner rule 3 pitches between innings All substitutions go through Home Plate umpire State the time limit 1 hr. 30 min. Starts at conclusion of conf. Ask if there are any questions Pre Game ConferenceCoaches / Umpires Be Prepared to answer KEEP BRIEF

  18. Communication w/ Partner • Outs / Count – Signal • Infield Fly - Signal • Alert during play, base coverage • Appeal Plays • Ask for help, must comply with coach’s request • Between Innings

  19. Communication with Coaches • Before games • Between innings • Explain calls when asked • Treat them as you would like to be treated

  20. Stopping of Games • Rain • Lightning (wait 30 minutes) • Darkness • Field conditions • Protest • $100 • Don’t stop game unless coach gives HP umpire protest fee • Umpire’s responsibility to know and apply the rules, make a decision • Coach’s responsibility to know the rules

  21. Respect it!

  22. Ending of Games Round Robin (Saturday) • Team leading after 7 innings • Time limit 1 hr. 30 min. • Finish inning • Tie after 8 innings within time limit • International rule starting 8th inning • Mercy Rule • 12-10-8 • Forfeit (not enough players to continue)

  23. Ending of Games Elimination Round (Sunday) • Team leading after 7 innings • Time limit 1 hr. 30 min. • Finish inning • Mercy Rule • 12-10-8 • Need winner • International rule starting 8th inning or start of inning after time limit whichever comes first • Forfeit(not enough players to continue)

  24. Line up Cards Must Keep Line up Cards All substitutes go through Home Plate Umpire

  25. About the Lineup Card Note: DP is NOT a defense position { • Lineup - defensive positions CAN be juggled/switched/ changed • A player can play any defensive position any time {

  26. Subbing & Reentering • # 8, Zink will enter for # 6, Ezell 8

  27. Subbing & Reentering • # 9, Watson for # 21, Hicks 9

  28. Subbing & Reentering • # 2, Udall for # 8, Zink • Cannot have two players ACTIVE (not circled) in the same slot 2 • Circle # 8 - she has left the game

  29. Subbing & Reentering • Re-enter # 6, Ezell • Circle # 6 - starter reenters • Sub & starter cannot be in game at same time • Circle # 2

  30. Subbing & Reentering • # 21, Hicks re-enters for # 7, Begay • Find # 21 • She is a starter who is not circled so she can come back in • But wait! (continued…)

  31. …Continued • # 9, not # 7, was in for # 21, • #7 is another starter • # 21 must re-enter the game in the same slot she was in before • Not legal - do not allow

  32. Subbing & Reentering • Okay! Okay! Let’s put # 21, Hicks in for # 9, Watson • Circle # 21, Hicks - starter re-enters • Circle # 9 - sub & starter can’t be in game at same time

  33. Subbing & Reentering • # 5, Tewa will go in for # 6, Ezell • Get # 5 and put her in for #6 5 • Someone goes in - someone has to go out • A sub & starter can’t be in the game at the same time • # 6 had used her re-entry so she is History - slash her

  34. Subbing & Reentering • Reenter # 9, Watson • Find # 9 - she must be a circled sub or an uncircled starter • She is a sub who had entered once so this is her last entry • Slash # 9 • Put # 9 in make sure there is a circled # 9 in the slot already so you know it is the same slot she entered on her first entry 9 • If # 9 goes in, Hicks, # 21 must leave the slot - Hicks is History

  35. Line-up Question and Answer Samples and Techniques

  36. Line ups • Can have as many as 12 players in line up • 8 position players, 1 DP, 1 Flex, and 2 AP • 11 players in batting order • Can start game with 8 players • Out when open spot comes to bat • Cannot continue with less than 8 players • If all players in line up • Can drop to 1 less than started in batting order

  37. Line ups • If all players in line up • Injury • Can drop to 1 less than started in batting order • Additional injuries result in forfeit • Disqualification • Player must be replaced in line up • Must be legal substitution • If no substitutes are available • A forfeit results

  38. A team may have as many as twelve players in the starting line-up

  39. For the DP/Flex to be in the game, they must be in the starting line-up approved by the umpire

  40. A team may begin the game with 8 players

  41. A player shows up late and is not listed as a starter or substitute on the line-up card. She is ineligible to play in the game Eligible roster members may be added as substitutes at any time

  42. Pam comes to bat in the top of the 1st inning in the 3rd position in the batting order and is wearing #8. The official line-up has Pam batting in the 3rd position #17. Numbers can be corrected with no warning or penalty

  43. An additional player can be listed anywhere in the starting line-up

  44. An Additional player can play any defensive position but must keep the same position in the batting order.
