In honor of the Major League Baseball season beginning last week, we are recognizing the umpire for this month’s #CoolJob Series. Umpires are responsible for officiating the game, enforcing and interrupting the rules, making judgement calls on plays, and taking care of any disciplinary actions.
In Major League Baseball, there are at least four umpires in a game, with one at each base. In playoff games, there can be as many as six umpires, with the addition umpires at the fair-foul line and in the outfield. The umpires have the official authority over the game. At Shopping Blitz, you can shop for the best clothes online that are fit for an umpire.
