Seeing the Illegal Pitch
Calling illegal pitches from the bases is a tough job. Here is a different approach that might make the job a little easier. The screencast mainly speaks to the college umpire but the technique can be used in all codes so long as umpires know the specific rules of the code they are working.

Umpires nearly always learn from their mistakes. It's a fact that others can learn from their mistakes too.

If you recognize an umpire in a video illustrating a mistake, rather than disparage him or her, realize the video may well prevent others (maybe even you) from making the same mistake.

When you umpire a game you become, for practical purposes, part of the public domain. That means pictures of you can be used in the paper, on websites, on You Tube and so forth as long as no money is being made from their use.
