The umpire is in the infield between 2nd and 3rd not out in the outfield grass / edge of infield. It’s my understanding if it hits the umpire in that field location it’s a live ball. However if it hits umpire in the infield it’s a dead ball - batter gets a hit and runners advance one base. Is that correct ? Thanks again Ohio Tex
Here is a link to a good write up on umpire interference. ... terference

Basically, it can be either a dead ball or a live ball depending on the situation.

Just out of curiosity, if you weren't the umpire in question, why did you yell out 'Dead Ball!'?

Thanks - helpful. This matches up with Ohio Tex’s reply.
Our kids were in the field. Runner on 2nd only. Two outs.
Home plate umpire allowed runner at 2nd to advance to 3rd. It was my understanding prior to this research and asssitance, that it would be a dead ball / umpire interference and batter gets first but runner on 2nd stays put as not forced to move up. Home plate umpire ruled live ball and allowed runner to advance. Runner ended up scoring on wild pitch and then after that we got batter out for 3rd out. So, run should not have counted.
