Plate umpire is the main umpire. He or she announces fair/foul balls within the bases. This umpire holds the supply of the baseballs and decides whether the field is playable if the weather is bad.

The Base umpires announces fair/foul past the base as well as make out and calls safe ones at the bases. Swining strike calls are decided by this umpire.
