 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Umpire Gerry Davis worked his 4,000th major league game Wednesday night when the Los Angeles Angels took on the Oakland Athletics.
The 60-year-old crew chief was at first base for his milestone game. He is the 21st umpire to reach the figure and joined Joe West and Tim McClelland among active umpires in that group.
Davis worked his first big league game in 1982 and became a member of the staff in 1984. He has called a record 115 postseason games, including 24 in the World Series.
Davis has umpired in four All-Star games and five World Series. He was the crew chief at both events last season.
