Umpire Responsibilities

  1. You are expected to be at all of your assigned games 20 minutes prior to starting time.
  2. Failure to show up at your assigned game will result in not getting future games. You are responsible for finding your own sub with the approval of the assignors. Call and get names and numbers for subs at least 2 days in advance. All subs must be approved.
  3. In the event of bad weather, if you are not called, it is your responsibility to go to the park and confirm that there is a game. You will not be paid for canceled games due to bad weather. If a game is started and then stopped due to bad weather, you will be paid.
  4. Report any unsportsmanlike behavior from players, parents or coach’s to Mr. Vasta immediately after the game. Email is sufficient.
  5. In the event of lightning, you must stop the game immediately and proceed by the rules.
  6. All games have a time limit and no new inning can begin after the time limit. Notify manager prior to limit. Each league may have a different time limit. Know your rules.
  7. Umpires will be expected to work any forfeited games since you will be paid.
  8. Get the games started on time and keep them moving. Allow only 5 warm up pitches between innings or one minute, whichever is shorter. STAY ALERT and don’t chat between innings.
  9. If your partner does not show up, report it immediately after the game to your assignment supervisor. You will receive 1.5 times the pay rate if you umpire alone.
  10. Pay cards must be filled out before the game and signed by both manager’s. The top two completed copies belong to the manager’s and the hard bottom copy will be your pay card to submit on the umpire pay days. NO CARD, NO PAY!
