The Ole Ball Game

Umpires missing a game

by Richard Lampe
(Richmond, VA)

Richard asked: I once read about an incident where major league umpires were stuck in Boston because of fog and that they could not get to their next game.

One coach from each team was designated umpire for the day, and the game was played and completed.

Can you refresh my memory on this?

rick answered: Richard, thank you for your question.

I have been unable to locate any information on the situation you describe.

I will put this up on the site, possibly one of our readers may have information on it.

Yours in baseball,
