Being an umpire requires many skills, talents, and knowledge. A good umpire must have excellent tracking, a consistent strike zone, exceptional timing, and the ability to execute proper field mechanics. Most important, though, an umpire must have a solid knowledge of the rules of baseball!

Having a proficient level of rules knowledge empowers umpires to have greater confidence and accuracy when making split-second calls. This in turn improves their ability to effectively explain rule interpretations and establish superior game management skills. Rules knowledge is vital to becoming a respected umpire.

An effective baseball rules resource should take a reader directly to a rule, use straightforward language to convey a clear and decisive interpretation, and retain accuracy. NFHS Baseball Rules in Black and White: 2019 - 2020 is that resource!
