MLB's 2016 AL and NL League Championship Series umpires are now available and posted here by umpire crew assignment. Where applicable, postseason umpires are listed by position as appearing in Game 1 of the series to which they are assigned. Umpire crew rotation for the best-of-seven League Championship Series is clockwise in the infield and counterclockwise in the outfield.
