(Sport: Baseball)


Normally there are four umpires. The home umpire is based behind the catcher so that he can judge the strikes. He has overall control of the game and his decisions are final. He is always dressed in protective clothing. The remaining umpires are positioned at the first three bases to ensure that the runners reach the bags safely. An official scorer is also used to record the statistical data from the game.
