Injury: Bill Miller Leaves Angels-A's Game After Hit to Head

Spurring the concussion discussion, HP Umpire Bill Miller left Wednesday's Angels-A's game five innings after being struck with a Zack Greinke fastball on the chin portion of his mask in the 1st inning. After calling two different Oakland Athletics batters out on two strikes (Brandon Inge [5th] and Cliff Pennington [6th inning]), the umpires convened and Miller left the contest due to injury. 2B Umpire Dan Iassogna retreated to the umpire's dressing room to put on his plate gear and take over behind home plate, pursuant to OBR Rule 9.02(d), while crew chief Dale Scott remained at first base and CB Bucknor remained at third.

OBR Rule 9.02(d):
No umpire may be replaced during a game unless he is injured or becomes ill.

Larry Vanover tossed Chris Young for arguing B/S in the pirates/dbacks game and Alfonso Marquez tossed Justin Upton for an equipment violation (throwing helmet)

Bill Miller is not working tonight and Is being replaced by DJ Reyburn. Now Dale Scott has gotten hit and left the game. CB Bucknor is now working behind the Plate and either him or Iassogna is the acting CC. That really scares me LoL. If Scott cannot go tommorow I bet they will bring a veteran from another crew to be the CC and send a AAA call-up to the crew that veteran was on.

Why did Iassogna come out in light blue when his crewmates were wearing black?
