If a pitch hits an umpire is it a dead ball ?
No injuries occurred on play.
It is a live ball.....
Umpires are part of the field...
Had this happen last weekend , High fastball hit umpire in chest protector. Runner would have scored , umpire yelled Dead ball...…….
The umpire made a mistake...
I have backed up the catcher on many occasions and prevented runs from scoring. Ball remains live.
Live ball, unless the umpire is positioned in front of a fielder...Which in softball if that happens than he is out of position
