UMPIRING NCOA BASEBALL
New Member Basics:
Expect normal physical demands. As the players’ ages increase and the competitive levels increase, the physical demands will rise. You will be required to jog several times to properly position yourself. You will stand several hours on end, occasionally in high heat.
Expect lectures, demonstration and exercises on the basic rules at local association meetings.
Polished, black athletic shoes. Either turf shoe or flat—bottom
Gray slacks. Check with local association
A specialized powder blue shirt. Some associations wear a red or navy golf shirt
Black leather belt
A cap. Get a sized one rather than an adjustable
Officiating tools: pencil and indicator
Equipment needed for the plate umpire:
A mask with a throat protector
An inside chest protector
A cup (for men)
Protective plate shoe
Estimated cost: $350. Sometimes, veteran umpires have "hand—me—downs" that help new umpires get started
