Do any of you have a set of guidelines as to what each umpire is responsible for looking at? I have seem some guidelines in a College manual...using the video attached to comment #1 as an example, if both umps were looking at the pitchers upper body, there is no way they are gonna be able to catch that balk move...

Balk. You as the plate umpire have this call. The base umpire can get this too, watching the front leg commit to home by bending his knee.

both umpires can see that non-pivot leg bending early. It's a tough call to make, though, because it's so fast. The pitcher calmed it down after the opposing coach complained........something to look for

Obviously the coaches have the best angles..especially on balls and strikes...on this play, I believe the plate guy has the best angle...base guy in C or 3rd base ump in 3 man has a great angle, unless he is in Deep B
