***THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF UMPIRING***

  • Keep your eye on the ball
  • Keep all your personalities out of your work. Forget and forgive
  • Avoid sarcasm. Don't insist on the last word
  • Never charge a player and, above all, no pointing your finger or yelling
  • Hear only the things you should hear - be deaf to others
  • Keep your temper. A decision made in anger is never sound
  • Watch your language
  • Take pride in your work at all times. Remember, respect for an umpire is created off the field as well as on
  • Review your work. You will find, if you are honest, that 90% of the trouble is traceable to loafing
  • No matter what your opinion of another umpire, never make an adverse comment regarding him. To do so is despicable and ungentlemanly
