Umpires for World Series named
This will be the fifth World Series for Davis, a 29-year veteran who also worked the Series in 1996, 1999, 2004 and 2009 -- when he was crew chief. He has worked 111 postseason games, tying retired umpires Jerry Crawford and Bruce Froemming for the record.
He will be joined by Dan Iassogna (first base for the opener), Fieldin Culbreth (second), Brian O'Nora (third), Brian Gorman (left) and Joe West (right), Major League Baseball said Tuesday.
West is working his fifth World Series, Gorman his third and Culbreth his second. Iassogna and O'Nora are Series rookies.
All six worked in the division series.
