POSITION OF THE BASE UMPIRE FOR

LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL

(Two-Umpire System)

A. Bases empty and a ball hit to the outfield. That umpire does not have to go out on. Pivot into the infield so you can move ahead of the runner not behind.

B or C. When a ball is hit through the infield or a fly ball to the outfield that the umpire doesn't have to go out on move into the infield grass.

D. Any time the base umpire goes out to make a call on a fly ball in the outfield the plate umpire must move into the infield to cover all the bases. (As specified earlier the base umpire should not go out, however if the base umpire goes out be prepared.)
