Jansen Visconti Hired to MLB Umpire Staff

As reported by the Wendelstedt Umpire School, MLB hired alum Jansen Visconti to the staff. Hailing from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, Visconti joins the full-time umpiring roster as the greenest hire of 2020; he made his big league debut in 2018 and officiated 250 regular season games over two seasons, including a league-high 142 games in 2019.

After graduating from the Wendelstedt School in 2010, Visconti began his professional career in the Gulf Coast League, working his way through the New York-Penn, Florida Instructional, South Atlantic, Carolina, Arizona Instructional, Eastern, and International Leagues before his first major league game on April 17, 2018. Visconti has also officiated the Arizona Fall League.
