Home Plate ump forget his long sleeves?

Twins/White Sox...I've never seen this at the MLB level before...long sleeves worn under a short sleeve shirt. Is that acceptable in any set?

Is it bad attire to wear a long sleeved shirt under the umpiring shirt? I've done this many times before and never been told it was a bad idea.

In the early part of the season, I do it all the time. I have enough invested in shirts and if I started buying long-sleeved shirts, I might have to look for a new wife. Not worth it. See it done by many oficials around here. If it happens that I get a case of the stupids and get sunburned, I might even wear the long-sleeved undershirt in July to protect from more injury.

Like most "fashion" items, it depends on the area. The saying, "Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have" applies here. If the umpires at "the next level" (whatever that means for you) wear this, then it's okay for you to wear it. If not, then don't.

Personally, I think that if it's cold enough to wear a long-sleeved undershirt, that you should wear either a long-sleeved over shirt or a jacket.

Agreed. In my association, we do not allow long sleeve undershirts with a short sleeve shirt. We do allow the long sleeve shirts to be worn at the discretion of the crew. Personally, I do not own a long sleeve shirt. I use a plate coat and on the bases I use a jacket if I am cold.

sounds like it's different everywhere in the country...i guess the takeaway here is do what your association says...

Question:

Should we treat long sleeve shirts the same as jackets in regard to your partner wearing one? So If I want to wear a long sleeve, can my partner wear a short sleeve and be ok?

IMO -- all base umpires must be the same, the plate umpire can be different.

Agreed, Bob. Of course, in a 2-man crew it always looks a bit odd, but I guess as long as I look like myself on the bases, I'll be OK.

that's the way that I've always been taught and the way that we've done it in our local groups.

Thanks

Agreed. I've never had a problem with a partner wearing long sleeves or a jacket while I'm behind the plate in short sleeves. But If there is more than one BU they should be uniform.

Also, my association recently sent out an email saying that long sleeve shirts are not to be worn under your short sleeve shirt.
