2020 MLB World Series Umpire Crew Roster

Major League Baseball announced umpire assignments for the 2020 #WorldSeries between the Los Angeles #Dodgers and Tampa Bay #Rays, featuring a crew of seven MLB umpires led by chief Bill Miller. Full roster and rotation for the Fall Classic follows.

Crew Chief Miller is indicated in bold text and by the -cc suffix, regular season crew chief Jerry Meals with an asterisk (*), interim crew chiefs Mark Carlson, Laz Diaz, and Marvin Hudson with a degree (°), and Todd Tichenor's first World Series assignments by the tag (^1st World Series^). The following crew is presented in Game 1 rotation with plate umpires for each subsequent game indicated in brackets.

Umpires in 2020 do not rotate through New York; instead, the seven-person crew features a standby/off official who does not work on the field the day prior to their plate assignment.

In this final stage of MLB's four-round postseason, as in the semifinal LCS, the rotation is as follows: RF-LF-3B-2B-1B-Off-HP, such that an umpire who begins Game 1 at first base will be off for Game 2, work behind home plate for Game 3, and move to right field for Game 4.

HP: Laz Diaz° [Game 1 Plate] - 1 Wild Card, 7 Division Series, 3 LCS, 3rd World Series
