Additon wears the uniform number 67 at the Major League level, which was last worn by Seth Buckminster, and makes his MLB debut at the age of 31. He resides in Davie, Florida, instructs at the Wendelstedt School, and is the first new fill-in umpire to make his debut during the 2017 regular season.
Additon most recently worked the plate for an 18-inning International League thriller on Friday night between Columbus and Louisville (As in Minnesota, Saturday's game in Louisville was postponed).
"Jim & Randy Wolf Situation" Alert: Ryan's brother Nick is a pitcher in the Korea Baseball Organization (KBO), having previously played in Minor League Baseball with the Cardinals, Orioles, and Brewers.
