Hirshbeck Brothers First to Umpire Together in MLB

Mark Hirshbeck and his brother, John, became the first pair of brothers to umpire in the same game in the Major Leagues. My book, Family Ties: A Comprehensive Collection of Facts and Trivia About Baseball’s Relatives, has an entire chapter devoted to umpires with family relationships in the Major Leagues.

Mark was recently inducted into the Fairfield County Connecticut Hall of Fame, joining his brother who was prevsiously honored.

See attached article in the Stratford Star about Mark.
