BOSTON (AP) - John Hirschbeck will umpire his fourth World Series and will be crew chief for the matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Hirschbeck will be behind the plate for Wednesday night's opener at Fenway Park, with Mark Wegner at first, Dana DeMuth at second, Paul Emmel at third, Bill Miller in left and Jim Joyce in right. Hirschbeck also worked the Series in 1995 and 2006 and was crew chief in 2010.
DeMuth will be working his fourth Series and Joyce his third but first since 2001. This will be the second Series for Miller and the first for Emmel and Wegner.
Umpires will continue to wear ''WB'' patches honoring umpire Wally Bell, who died Oct. 14. Bell umped the 2006 World Series and this year's All-Star game.
