It's been a pretty common assumption for awhile now, but it's been officially announced that "Cowboy" Joe West will retire
following the 2021 postseason. He'll be behind the plate in Dodger Stadium for tonight's game.

Whatever you think of him, he's notched his place in major league history over the last 44 years.

From the above-linked article:

Quote:
The 68-year-old is the record holder for most games umpired, a record he broke in May. His record-breaking game came when he umped his 5,376th contest, which surpassed previous record holder Bill Klem.


Congratulations.

I will not miss him, but he deserves some credit for his longevity. And I think he does have the respect of some players, but just not a lot of fans. Lol
