One of Major League Baseball’s best umpire’s of all-time, Marty Springstead, is dead at age 74.

MLB said on Wednesday that Springstead was found dead at his home in Florida on Tuesday night.

Liked by players and managers, Springstead at the age of 36 became the youngest umpire crew chief in World Series history.

From Nyack, New York, he was an American League umpire from 1966-1985. His other World Series appearances include 1978 and 1983. All-Star games include 1969, 1975 and 1982. He umpired in five AL championship series.

After retiring as an active umpire on the field, he became the American League’s executive director of umpires, then became an umpire supervisor for MLB after staffs from the NL and AL merged into one group.

He retired from his supervisor’s position just before the 2010 season.
