Three & Four Man Mechanics

Well it is now tournament time and you are responsible for assigning umpires to your districts tournament games. You would really like to assign as many umpires to games as possible, but you are not sure how to set them up in crews of 3 or 4 because you don’t know the mechanics for 3 or 4 umpires. Or you do know how it should work on a 90 foot diamond, but have no idea how to set it up on the 60 foot diamond or vice versa. Well fret no more my friends, click on littleleague.org/umpire and you will have the 3 & 4 man mechanics for the 60 and 90 foot diamonds at your disposal.

Hope this helps. Have fun and keep smiling.
