KBUA Uniform
NOTE: The KHSAA logo is required on hats, shirts and jackets worn in sanctioned high school sports.
 
General Guidlines:
The KBUA is bound by the policies passed down by the KHSAA pertaining to umpire uniforms. While we adhere to theses policies, we understand that purchasing and maintaining uniforms can be an expensive task. We take pride in umpiring and strive to maintain a professional level on the field and that includes our choice of uniforms. Keep the following guidelines in mind when dressing:
  1. All umpires should wear the same uniform
  2. Exception: In cold weather, the plate umpire may elect to wear a shirt while the base umpires wear jackets
  3. Umpire shirts are not required beneath a jacket, but if worn must adhere to the KHSAA color combinations (below)
  4. Uniforms should be clean and neat
  5. Undershirts, if seen, should be white for all uniform combinations
  6. Long sleeved shirts may be worn, however, undershirts that protrude beyond short sleeves are discouraged.
 
The KBUA has 3 uniform combinations as sanctioned by the KHSAA:
  • Light Blue
  • Navy Blue
  • Black

Pants:
 
Pants are to be gray in color. While the shade of gray is up to personal preference, the KBUA encourages you to purchase Charcoal Gray pants. (The old Heather Gray pants are much lighter and are being phased out by the suppliers.)
You will want to wear separate pants for the plate and bases. Supply houses sell a plate pant that is cut larger to accomodate protective gear.
 
Suppliers:
 
The KBUA does not officially endorse any supplier and you may purchase uniforms and equipment from anyone you choose. However, we have developed a working relationship with Ump-Attire because of its proximity (headquartered in Louisville) and encourage you to visit their offices where you can handle first hand and try on anything you are considering purchasing. They also extend a 10% discount to KBUA members.
