MLB announces umpire crew for World Series
John Hirschbeck will serve as the crew chief for the six-man umpire crew in the World Series.
Major League Baseball has announced the umpire crew for the World Series:
#WorldSeries umpires: crew chief John Hirschbeck along w/ Dana DeMuth, Paul Emmel, Jim Joyce, Bill Miller & Mark Wegner.— MLB Public Relations (@MLB_PR) October 22, 2013
Solid staff, most notably because Joe West and Angel Hernandez are nowhere to be found. Jim Joyce is widely regarded as one of the best umpires in the game, though I think his reputation has been embellished a bit after the ultra-classy way he handled blowing the call to end Armando Galarrago's perfect game.
Game 1 of the World Series will be played on Wednesday night. Adam Wainwright and Jon Lester will be the starting pitchers.
