do field umpires stand behind infielders in town & country baseball?

Not many here will know what "town & country baseball" is -- so, as a general guideline: if runners can lead off, then the umpire is inside; if the runners cannot lead off, then the umpire is outside.

Generally, on a 60 foot diamond the umpires will be behind the fielders. There's just not enough room to work inside without being in the way of the fielders. Plus, if you have to watch for runners leaving base too soon, you can't do that if they're behind you.

On 70 or 90 foot diamonds, we usually work inside the diamond.

Town and Country is a bowling alley by me.

Seriously though, what is mentioned above is true.

I don't like being behind the bag for 60 foot games. Years ago I would kneel behind the pitcher which was effective 80% of the time. The other 20% was getting hit by the ball or interfeering with the play.
