<br /> <br /> UMPIRE MANUAL<br /> LETTER FROM THE USA SOFTBALL NATIONAL OFFICE<br /> USA Softball Umpires<br /> We want to welcome you to the 2020 Softball Season. Thank you for being a USA Softball<br /> Umpire as it is because of you we continue to have the best dressed, best trained and dedi-<br /> cated umpires in the country. Without all of you we could not continue to make the umpire<br /> program better every year. From those who umpire USA Softball league softball night in and<br /> night out, those who represent us on the National Stage and those who umpire on the World<br /> Stage you are the ones that show everyone we are the best umpires in the world of Softball.<br /> We continue to look at ways to help our program get better every year. We have a new<br /> agenda for the USA Softball National Umpire Schools that is working well. We have also<br /> revamped the Fast Pitch Camps and Slow Pitch Camps, to be more advanced in techniques<br /> and philosophies tar<a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=1"> </a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=2"> UMPIRE MANUAL LETTER FROM THE USA SOFTBALL NATIO</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=3"> UMPIRE MANUAL TABLE OF CONTENTS 2020 Umpire Ma</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=4"> UMPIRE MANUAL Requesting Help on a Check Swing .</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=5"> UMPIRE MANUAL CHAPTER 6 Umpire Systems The </a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=6"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 NATIONAL UMPIRE STAFF DIRECT</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=7"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 DEPUTY UMPIRE STAFF DEPUTY DI</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 8" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=8"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 DEPUTY UMPIRE STAFF DEPUTY DI</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 9" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=9"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 NATIONAL UMPIRE STAFF Northea</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 10" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=10"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 NATIONAL UMPIRE STAFF Midwes</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 11" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=11"> UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE ALABAMA Alabama Terry V</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 12" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=12"> UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE IDAHO Idaho Gary McCarn</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 13" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=13"> UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE MISSISSIPPI Mississippi</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 14" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=14"> UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE OREGON Oregon Don Alexa</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 15" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=15"> UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE WISCONSIN Wisconsin Al W</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 16" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=16"> RULES SUPPLEMENT UMPIRE-IN-CHIEF BY STATE </a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 17" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=17"> UMPIRE MANUAL 2020 POINTS OF EMPHASIS What Are T</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 18" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=18"> UMPIRE MANUAL position and number of infielders u</a> <a title="2020 Umpire Manual page 19" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/49044226?page=19"> UMPIRE MANUAL an arc of 6 feet.
