Plate Meeting Podcast 8 - Call for Q's - Jerry Crawford announces its eighth Plate Meeting podcast episode with guest Jerry Crawford, a 35-year MLB umpire veteran with 4,371 regular season games, five Division Series, 12 LCS, and five World Series. Now's your chance to ask Jerry questions about his career and any of his 86 career ejections.

Crawford began his professional umpiring career with the New York-Penn League in 1967, and officiated the Florida State, Carolina, Eastern, and International Leagues before his promotion to the National League staff in 1976. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jerry is the son of long-time Major League umpire Shag Crawford and brother of retired NBA referee Joe Crawford.

As we wrote in our recent retro Teachable Moment, Crawford didn't eject relatively often, but was involved in a few intense rhubarbs during his tenure in the majors.
