Pants are Charcoal Gray in color. Pants worn behind the plate must have legs large enough to be worn with shinguards. Unless you get "combo" pants, don't wear your plate pants when working the bases. Get another pair of Base pants for that.


The Navy Blue shirt with Red/White/Blue trim is the default shirt for umpires. If you don't have any other shirt, get this one. Get one that fits normally for working the bases. Get a larger size that will fit comfortably over your chest protector for working the plate.


t shirt
T-shirts, turtlenecks, or other undergarments must meet the requirements of the Uniform Policy. If you have only one, get a red one with no logo on front or back. Long-sleeved undergarments are acceptable only if worn under a jacket or long-sleeved shirt.


Black or Navy Blue.


There are several styles of jackets, Most umpires have two sizes of jackets. One for working the bases and another for working the plate (Make sure it fits over your chest protector).


This is a "fitted" cap.  Navy Blue is the default, but a Black cap is required if wearing the black or Cream colored shirts. There are 3 sizes of cap bills, a 4-stitch used only with a mask, a 6 stitch "combo" that can be used on the bases or with a mask, and an 8-stitch that is used only on the bases.


Black 1" or 1-1/4" belt. Don't use a regular dress belt. It won't provide the support you need for the ball bag when working the plate.

Plate Shoes

These are an absolute necessity when working the plate!!

Base Shoes

Base shoes should be predominantly black. Some white is acceptable (logos, etc.).

Ball Bag

ball bag
Ball bags Should be Navy Blue (default) or Black when the crew is wearing the black or cream shirt.
