Name This Umpire You folks are pretty good at identifying major league baseball players. How are you at identifying major league umpires? Can you name this famous arbiter. Two hints: His nickname was 'God' and he is at the top of many people's lists of those who should be enshrined in Cooperstown but isn't.

Doug Harvey

Correct! It is Doug Harvey. Harvey was a National League umpire for 31 seasons (1962 through 1992). Not bad for a guy who never attended an umpiring school.

A SABR poll ranked Harvey as the second greatest umpire of all time, behind only Bill Klem.

Someone really needs to explain to me why Harvey hasn't been elected into the Hall of Fame.

I believe there is a separate part of the HOF for umpires and that nominees are appointed by the Veterans Committee. Nestor Chylak, Jocko Conlan, Al Barlick, and a few others are in that part of the HOF. Of these I definitely remember Chylak and Barlick. While I do not remember Conlan, I do remember hearing stories about him by old timer players and managers.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame groups umpires together with players and executives. Enshrined umps get the same plaques as players do. There is a separate wing of the Hall of Fame for broadcasters and journalists who have been honored witht he annual Ford Frick Award.

Doug Harvey has missed being elected by just a couple of votes on at least two occasion. If Al Barlick and Nestor Chylak can get into the Hall of Fame, one must ask why Doug Harvey with his stellar record has not been so honored.

Great news! It was announced today that Doug Harvey has been chosen for induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place in July.

Harvey is not well. I hope he is able to attend this well deserved honor in Cooperstown.
