The umpire crew was announced for the National League Championship Series between the Braves and Dodgers. Here’s how it shapes out.
Jerry Meals will be the crew chief, his third career LCS. The rest of the crew features Jordan Baker, Lance Barksdale, Mark Carlson, Tripp Gibson, James Hoye and Todd Tichenor. Meals, Baker, Carlson and Hoye worked the AL Wild Card Game earlier this Postseason.
According to Major League Baseball, each of the seven umpires assigned to the LCS crews could receive one plate assignment during the series. Each umpire will be in reserve during the game prior to their scheduled plate duties.
For example, Baker will not be on the field in Game 1 of the NLCS.
You can see the full list of umpires and their postseason experience below. Underneath will be a graphic that shows how the umpires will rotate throughout the series and who to expect behind the plate for each game.
