There's a couple of good pics on the website below of an MLB ump in the proper position to call the pitch.

He stands too far back of the catcher. I've had discussions about that with Mark Buscheck. Someone needs to correct him. But he's been an ump in the area for so long nobody wants to talk to him about it. Watch a major league ump. As the pitch is coming in the ump eyes are close to the upper, inside part of the strike zone. And the ump very close to the catcher, close enough to touch his shoulder. Nils is way back, standing too upright and is in the middle of the zone. Whatever, but it would be nice if someone brought this to his attention.
