Home Plate Umpire
The home plate umpire is positioned behind the catcher, in foul territory. The home plate umpire is responsible for making all judgments on balls and strikes, as well as any plays involving the batter or catcher.
The home plate umpire also has some judgment calls to make on checked swings, batted balls hit into foul territory, and determining whether a pitch has hit the batter. In addition, the home plate umpire is responsible for calling timeouts and keeping track of substitutions.
First Base Umpire
The first base umpire is responsible for making all calls at first base. This includes plays where the ball is batted, as well as plays involving the runner on first base. The first base umpire also has some responsibility for calling balls and strikes, as well as checking the batter’s swing on close calls.
Second Base Umpire
The second base umpire is responsible for making calls on batted balls in the area near second base, as well as any stolen base or caught stealing attempts. The second base umpire also makes the call on whether a runner is safe or out when he is trying to advance on a ground ball hit to the outfield.

MLB uses a rotating system to assign umpires to games. The process is as follows:
-The Head of Umpiring creates a master list of all umpires, ranked from 1-18
-The Head of Umpiring creates a rotation schedule for the next three weeks, based on the master list
-The game assignments are then sent out to the umpires two weeks in advance.
For example, if today is May 1st, the Head of Umpiring would create a rotation schedule for the games taking place from May 15th-31st. This schedule would be sent out to the umpires on May 1st, and they would know which games they are assigned to two weeks in advance.
