Questions based on NFHS, OBR, and Little League rules.

This interactive quiz has over 300 questions (and growing).  These questions have been collected from all over the place. Feel free to send more my way!

The database of questions started out as a learning aid for umpires working Little League games at the majors and below.  Over the years, its expanded to included Junior/Senior/Big League and Softball.  This year, the database expands yet again to include Federation High School rules (NFHS)!

For each question, I try to cite the rule.  When the question was written (barring dyslexia), the correct rule was cited.  As rule books change, the rule numbers sometimes drift, so you might have to look around a little to find the exact rule.  If a ruling is the same for Fed and OBR, I only cite the OBR rule.  If there's something special for Fed, I'll cite the Fed rule.

Some of these questions are specific to High School or Little League, a particular level of Little League or even a specific local Little League. You can choose to filter out these questions using the options below. If a question doesn't apply to all basball/softball, it will note what it does apply to.  (If nothing is noted, the rule is the same for all associations, all levels)

If you find any of these questions in error (or you just want to drop me a line), send me mail at
