Umpire Quizzes & Trivia

This is the USSSA National Fast Pitch Umpire Test and Rules Challenge. It's highly recommended as a fast umpire to take this test with a CLOSED BOOK, to challenge your knowledge of the rules. Upon submission, the test score and answers will be provided with rule references. You can use this as a learning tool, after seeing areas which might need additional study -- but keep the book closed - and challenge yourself !
