Best Answer

An umpire has nothing to do with the batting order. This is up to the coach to insure his players are batting in the correct order. Your coach will give a copy of your line up to the umpire and the other team. If a batter is out of order then it's up to the other team to bring this to the umpires attention before the next batter gets to the plate. If they do identify someone is out of order, in time, then the batter is out. If they fail to bring it to the umpires attention in time then there is no penalty.

Who is responsibility is it to call a fair or foul ball?

If it is a fly ball into the outfield up the first or third base foul line, it will be the responsibility of the first or third base umpire. If it is a (pop) fly ball in the infield area, it is generally the responsibility of the closest umpire. If it is a ground ball up the foul line between home and first or home and third, it is generally the home plate umpire's responsibility; however, if it is a bounding ball that bounces over or nearly over first or third base, or if it is a ground ball that continues to roll up the line almost to first or third, it will generally be the responsibility of the first or third base umpire. This is one of the reasons umpires work as a team for several games in succession, so they know what each of their responsibilities are. In play-off games, there may be additional umpires on the field and these responsibilities will be adjusted accordingly.
