Today's TTM Return From Jerry Crawford

Jerry Crawford was the home plate umpire (and crew chief) for Game 7 when the Angels beat the Giants to win their first and only World Series in 2002. If you didn't know, Jerry is also the son of the famous umpire Shag Crawford, and inherited his number 2 after Shag retired in 1975.

I had him sign this 2003 Upper Deck commemorating the Game 7 win.

Jerry was kind enough to answer a couple questions. I love #1...he literally got a break to make it to the bigs.

Jerry signed these in 7 days, returned from his home in St Petersburg, Florida.


  1. Golfing in Florida. Could be doing worse.

  2. Jerry Crawford is one of those umps from when I first starting following baseball as a kid. My brain tends to think those guys are still umping.
