He never had to sprint to get to the ball. That's an ordinary effort. The umpire is taught to simply wait to make sure the ball continues to hang up as long as it takes for the player to make a play on it.
I took several umpiring classes in my 10 years of umpiring. Legion ball, which I did a lot of, uses major league rules. He absolutely 100% did exactly as everything I've ever been taught in training.
