MLB announces umpires, start times for Games One & Two of ALDSBy
The Yankees still don’t know who they’re going to play in the ALDS, but at least now they know when they’ll be playing and who will be running things on the field. MLB announced that Game One will start 6:15pm ET on Sunday while Game Two will begin at 8:07pm ET on Monday. Both games will be broadcast on TBS and will be played in either Texas or Baltimore, depending on who wins tonight’s wildcard play-in game.
The six-man umpiring crew will include Brian Gorman, Mark Carlson, Fieldin Culbreth, Mike Everitt, Angel Hernandez, and Tony Randazzo. I wonder if that order indicates Hernandez will be behind the plate for a potential Game Five, which would be a disaster. Either way, Games Three though Five (in necessary) will be played Wednesday through Friday of next week with start times yet to be announced.
