UMPIRING TECHNIQUES

This page is designed to help umpires understand the basics of positioning and the rules.

Below is an example of a home plate umpire positioning himself in the Slot Position. The Slot Position is the area between the batter and the inside corner of the plate. This is a popular position taken by home plate umpires as it allows them to see the whole area of the plate.
