L1.A4 - The Ten Commandments of Umpiring

L1.A4 - "The Ten Commandments of Umpiring"  by Ford Frick, NL President

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