The All-Star Game umpires have been announced

15 Comments

Major League Baseball just announced the All-Star Game umpires. They are:

  • Home plate: Gerry Davis;
  • First Base: Jim Joyce;
  • Second Base: Brian Runge;
  • Third Base: Tony Randazzo;
  • Left Field: Lance Barksdale; and
  • Right Field: Brian Knight

Joyce obviously sticks out given the reason most of you know who he is was because of that botched call at first base to screw up the Armando Galarraga perfect game.  But I think it’s OK, because Brian Runge has been on hand for two perfect games and a no-hitter this year. He’s the ying to Joyce’s yang, right?
