Indicator - Umpires will need to go to a sporting goods store and purchase their own indicator. Examples
Umpire Tee Shirt - Umpire tee shirts are required. If you don't have one, you can purchase one when you register or in the FSC store (see store link on the web site). It will be delivered to you during one of the umpire training sessions.
Timers - Umpires should purchase their own timer (timer should be a basic stove timer that times down and alerts once time has expired) and carry it with them at all times. It is difficult to use your cell phone or a watch if it does not have a clock down with an alarm at expiration.
Sweatshirt (Optional) - Umpire sweatshirts are available for $27 in the league store or at registration. An umpire sweatshirt is the only outer clothing allowed to be worn OVER your umpire shirt; otherwise, your umpire shirt will have to go over your non-umpire sweatshirt when working games.
