MLB Suspends Umpire With Local Ties

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK, NY -

Associated Press

Major League Baseball suspended umpire Fieldin Culbreth for two games because he was in charge of the crew that allowed Astros manager Bo Porter to improperly switch relievers in the middle of an inning.

 

Brian O'Nora, Bill Welke and Adrian Johnson were also fined on Friday, after MLB admitted its umps goofed for the second straight day.

 

The problem in Houston came a day after Angel Hernandez and his crew in Cleveland failed to reverse a clear-cut home run after looking at a video review. MLB vice president Joe Torre said the umpires made an "improper call."
