Umpires Announced for All-Star Game


Derryl Cousins, a regular season Crew Chief in his 30th year of Major League service, will serve as Crew Chief and work behind the plate at the 79th All-Star Game, to be played Tuesday, July 15th at Yankee Stadium.

This will be the third All-Star Game assignment for Cousins, who also worked the Midsummer Classic in 1987 and 1998. Cousins has worked five Division Series, five League Championship Series and three World Series. Cousins will be joined by Ed Rapuano (first base), Tom Hallion (second base), Mark Wegner (third base), Greg Gibson (left field) and Phil Cuzzi (right field). This will be the second All-Star Game for Rapuano (1995) and Hallion (1992) and the first Midsummer Classic for Wegner, Gibson and Cuzzi.

well the name certainyl fits, Cousins blew the play at the plate in the 11th along with the bad call on the steal at 2nd. Umpires living up to their standards.
