Types/Levels of Baseball called

  1. This is a question to the higher-level / more experienced guys (college and higher, typically). I've called plenty of games in stadiums before, but these were events wherein the participants were playing in a venue exceeding their level (HS tournament in a Major / Minor -league stadium, for example). Or, NAIA or small college games where the venue "handles" more like a high-school facility. The official scorekeeper is usually in close proximity to the field, whether by position or relation to the home team's dugout. However, several of us are off to independent professional leagues this summer wherein the venues are actual, bonafide stadiums with pressboxes and scorekeepers likely positioned beyond talking distance. So, what is the signal language (USL?) that communicates lineup changes or other game-affecting information (weather delay?) to the scorekeeper? I could use advice / direction on such things as: Pitching Change Pinch Runner Pinch / Substitute Batter Defensive Substitution Elimination of the DH Protest Weather Delay Suspension of Play Anything else you can think up that we take for granted just by walking near to the scorekeeper's table behind the backstop?
