Evaluation: Positioning/Angles
Description: Is the umpire in the correct starting position? Is the umpire the correct distance from the play in making a call? Is the base umpire utilizing the 90 degree theory? Does the umpire read ‘pressure’ when appropriate? Is the umpire getting a better angle versus distance? Is the umpire making adjustments not to get blocked out on a play? Plate umpire getting the correct position for plays at the plate?
Umpire does not meet the expectation for this competency. e.g. Umpire is consistently out of position early in the tournament and does not show improvement as the tournament goes on.
