There are 4 umpires in a regular season baseball game. They are situation behind home plate and the 3 bases.

During end-of-year playoff series and the World Series, 2 additional umpires are added to cover the foul lines behind 1st and 3rd bases.

All games have an official scorer role as well, although technically considered an umpire.
