Considerations for Umpires:

  • Bring personal hand sanitizer. Wash hands frequently
  • Do not share equipment.
  • Umpires should not handle equipment on the field during play.
  • Contact with the game balls should be limited.
  • Masks/cloth face coverings and disposable gloves will be permitted.
  • Line ups should be handed to the umpire, the umpire will verbally approve or ask any questions. Line up exchange with opposing coach and scorekeeper should be done electronically via text or photo.
  • The verbal exchange of substitutions should occur 6’ from the coach to the scorer and opposing team when making lineup changes.
  • Keep catcher and batter at a 6’ distance when dusting off the plate.
  • Base umpires should maintain 6’ from any player as a starting position when rotated and/or counter rotated.
  • The umpire-in-chief should wear a face mask behind the plate.
  • Clean equipment after each game.
  • Follow social distancing guidelines. Consider six feet minimum distance when talking to others (players, coaches, other umpires) at plate meetings.
  • Do not shake hands and follow pre and post-game ceremony guidelines established by state associations.
  • Evaluate pre-existing health conditions.

If the pitcher puts her hands to her mouth and touches the ball, “Time” is called, a new ball is inserted and the pitcher must sanitize her hands before throwing the next pitch.RCUA
