    First ML umpire to have hit 3 homers in a game? Or is it the first Umpire to throw Jackie Robinson out of a game, which would probably make him the first umpire to throw a black ballplayer out of a majore league game.

      The first umpire to kick a fielder in the head while simultaneously stepping on a runners back.

        I've heard of players hitting three homers in a game but have never known an umpire to get an at bat even.

        He was the first umpire to eject Jackie Robinson from a game.

          How bout Bill Dineen? He was a former ML player who had got some at bats, I think.

            You are misunderstanding my answer. With the exception of things from the early days and a rare player filling in for an umpire an umpire has never batted. He may have while he was a player, but not after becoming a umpire.
