    Brick Owens comes to mind, and so do Hildebrand and Dineen from 1922.

    In a AAA game, he also threw out a guy that sang the national anthem. He's done quite a bit of crazy stuff, he sucks end of story. I hope he gets fired ASAP.

    I would have to say the one of the most famous current umpires is C.B Bucknor. Jerry Crawford is also some what well known.

    This could actually bring up a discussion on the consistency of the strike zone over the years. Do umpires really follow the given rules or do they already have set biases?

    How about Eric Gregg and his absolutely awful strike zone. As far as he was concerned as long as Glavine kept it down and away it was a strike.

    Why not than use another minority ump, there are others and they have to be better than him. He is horrible, he can't call strikes and he is a hot-head, seems he thinks fans are there to see him!

    I second that, the most inconsistent strikezones on the planent. I hope my team doesn't get too many of his games next season. He did throw out an organist though.

    I have to admit that was one blown call, one I didn't complain about that much when it happened

    Who can forget Don Denkinger's infamous "safe" call in Game 6 of the '85 World Series

    That looks more recent than 3 man crews.

    I don't believe 'infamous' is the proper term. In the days of 3-man crews, a photo appeared in one of the national weekly magazines. It showed two umpires making a call at 2B. One ump was signaling "OUT", the other was signaling "SAFE". I carried that picture in my wallet for years, until it finally fell apart.
