I would like to think not, but I guess anything is possible. i do not mean by a gun . i mean if a ball or bat should hit him
No. The Home Plate Umpire, the Catcher, and the Batters are in foul territory, because they are all positioned behind the foul lines.
Normaly either the first base umpire or the second base umpire... i have seen the home plate umpire call it!
behind the plate
There is no umpire in volleyball! There is an R1, otherwise known as an up ref who calls all the rules.
No it is up to the plate umpire if he wants assistance from the base umpire. Even if you request it he can deny that request and make the call himself.
There should be 2 big bolts that hold it in place behide the anchor inside plate area.
The Home Plate Umpire...
the umpire's of the games are really honest..........................
They are called Umpires. One is the plate umpire, one is the field umpire.
The home plate umpire position does not pay more or less than the umpires in the field. In the Major Leagues, umpires are paid off of their tenure and performance in the league. The 4 umpires typically rotate their postions. After umpiring behing the plate, an umpire will typically umpire the 1st base position in the next game. He will move to 2nd and then 3rd in the following games before being back behind the plate again.
The home plate umpire calls whether pitches are strikes or balls. He also calls plays made on home plate. He also tells batters to walk if they are hit with a pitch.
YES but he should do so after a conference with the home plate umpire. The idea is to get the call right and if the base umpire saw something the home plate umpire did not see he should confer with the the plate ump to get it right.
