I was extremely happy to see a letter in my mailbox today from Doug Harvey. Mr. Harvey is a former MLB umpire as well as a member of the most recent induction class as you can see from his signature. He signed the 3x5 cardstock I sent him in standard blue pen. He was nice enough to include his induction year as well.
Harvey apparently earned the nickname of "God" for his authoritative command of the baseball rulebook. Not a bad moniker for an umpire!
Harvey is the first MLB umpire in my collection and is in fact the ONLY living Hall of Fame umpire.
