(1) Not if the batter is 6'3"
(2) Considering the way the catcher is holding his glove Mr. Umpire looks a tad too intense for what is clearly a lower-level recreational game
(3) I DO like the big bulky shin guard extensions covering the plate shoes
(4) I wonder what Mr. Umpire was planning to do should a ball get past said catcher. Other than a Star Trek teleporter there's not really any place said umpire can disappear to.

But other than that. Nah. He's fine.

And, apparently, neither do you have to have a thought worth sharing.

And Dan, in the kiddieball world, it is sometimes wise for the umpire to stand his ground so the catcher doesn't back up all the way to the fence.

This is true. When I have a catcher who likes to park way behind the plate, virtually screwing up my view of the pitch, I move up to where I want to stand while he is throwing the ball back to the pitcher. He will usually back right into me, and then figures out that I'm not moving, and then moves up to where his coach should have told him to squat in the first place.

If you look at the picture, the catcher is where is he supposed to be, the umpire is about 2 feet inside the catchers box. Normally im about on the inside edge of the line, not much further foward.

Besides, catchers make great hand warmers in this cooler weather.
