12/29/22 : Ten MLB Umpires retiring

Updated: Dec 31, 2022


“Well-respected crew chiefs Ted Barrett ( 57 ) , Greg Gibson ( 54 ) , Tom Hallion ( 66 ), Sam Holbrook ( 57 ),  Jerry Meals ( 61 ), Jim Reynolds ( 54 ) and Bill Welke ( 55 ) are among the group to hang up their chest protectors while Marty Foster ( 59 ), Paul Nauert ( 59 ) and Tim Timmons ( 54 ) will join them in retirement. “ In all, the retiring umpires have worked over 200 combined MLB seasons.” - ESPN


The news was delivered in an article this morning by Jesse Rogers of ESPN.  ( Link https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/35341465/sources-10-mlb-umps-retiring-most-99 ). It is the most umpire retirements since 1999 going into a season.


“The league will promote or hire 10 new umpires next month and is committed to making it a diverse group, but a first-ever female MLB umpire won't be among them. Jen Pawol could eventually break that barrier, as she worked in Double-A last season.” - Jesse Rogers
