Joe Brinkman Umpire

Post by caappy » Mon Jun 01, 2020 1:54 pm

Joseph Norbert Brinkman (born April 9, 1944) is an American former umpire in Major League Baseball (MLB) who worked in the American League (AL) from 1972 to 1999 and throughout both major leagues from 2000 until his retirement during the 2006 season.

PINE TAR Incident:
Brinkman was the crew chief during the Pine Tar Incident between the Kansas City Royals and New York Yankees on July 24, 1983. In that game, George Brett of the Royals hit a two-run home run off of Yankees reliever Goose Gossage in the ninth inning, but home plate umpire Tim McClelland, after conferring with Brinkman and the rest of the crew, found that the pine tar on Brett's bat exceeded the allowed limit of 18 inches, and Brett was called out. Brett immediately ran out of the dugout toward the umpires, and disputed the call so vehemently that Brinkman had to grab him around the neck to keep him from attacking McClelland. Brinkman recovered Brett's bat, having caught a batboy attempting to hide it in the Royals' clubhouse.

He is #15 and he grabs Brett to keep him from getting to McClelland..

Sent him 2 photos on 12 May and got them back signed on 1 Jun
