Our guest this week is former American League umpire Al Clark. Al umpired in the American League/Major League from 1976-2001. He co-authored the book Called Out But Safe: A Baseball Umpire's Journey with Dan Schlossberg. Al was the only umpire hired by the American League who is Jewish and he is the only official in any sport to wear his name on his hat each day. Enjoy this conversation Rex Naylor conducted with Al as he shares many stories about his baseball umpiring career and his life.
