The 10 Commandments of Umpiring

by Ford C. Frick (1949)

#

Commandment

1

Keep your eye on the ball.

2

Keep all your 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 or 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. You will find, if you are honest, 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.
