We are privileged to have long time American League umpire Al Clark as our guest this week. Al umpired from 1976-2001 and was a member of the umpiring crew in the 1978 AL East one-game playoff in Fenway Park between the Red Sox and Yankees (the famous Bucky Dent HR game). Al also umpired in the 1983 and 1989 World Series. You will not want to miss his discussion of that 1978 playoff game along with the “Earthquake” World Series. Al Clark is the only umpire in MLB history of Jewish descent and was the only umpire to wear his name on his cap from 1976-1999 (AL). Al is very generous with his time and always an honor to interview.
