Depending on the call all umpires can reverse a call but the crew chief supersedes all umpire ...


The chief umpire for the game, aka. plate umpire makes the final decision on a call when another umpire ask for help. If the umpire does not ask for help no other umpire should interfere with the call. The home plate umpire is the chief umpire, unless the league appoints an umpire as the chief umpire -- MLB appoints a crew chief for every umpire crew, all calls where umpires ask for help will come down to his final judgement. You can find all of this in 9.02 and 9.04 of the rules

What does a tennis umpire explain when a serve lands outside the boundires?

The umpire or line judge simply calls the ball out. They don't have to explain anything, but occassionally a player may ask the chair umpire to confirm the call. In major tournaments, there may be a challenge system in place that allows players to challenge a chair umpire's or line judge's call using replay cameras, but even then, the umpire doesn't have to explain anything, they just say whether the point will be replayed or they call a new score.

What is the definition of appeal in the softball terminolo0gy?

In Softball, just like Baseball, the home-plate umpire is the highest umpire and makes most of the final decisions. A good example of an appeal would be: Pitcher pitches a ball out of the strike zone. The batter checks their swing and the home plate umpire calls a ball. The catcher thinks the batter may have went around with the bat, so the catcher then appeals the call by asking either the umpire on 1st or 3rd (depending on whether the batter is left- or right-handed) for their judgment, since they are able to see clearly whether the batter went around or not. Although the Home Plate Umpire made the call, the other umpire now has the ability to overrule his call if it, indeed, was a strike. If the call is not appealed, the other umpire is not allowed to overrule the call, even if it is wrong.

What is basball timeout rule?

This is rule 5.10, which states, in essence, that the umpire shall call "time out" in certain situations. An important part of the rule is that no umpire shall call "time out" while play is in progress except in case of light failure or when an accident incapacitates a player or umpire. Also, commonly mis-understood, is that only an umpire can call time out; a coach or player can only "request" time out, which must be granted by the umpire before the time out actually occurs.
