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.

Rays manager Maddon named AL Manager of the Year

The Tampa Bay Rays lose good players every year through trades and free agency and they continue to win games and get into the playoffs.

There are two reasons for this. A strong farm system and a solid manager.

With that said, Joe Maddon has been named the 2011 American League Manager of the Year.

The 57-year-old Maddon won the AL award for the second time. He led the Rays to overcome a nine-game deficit to edge out the aging Boston Red Sox for the wildcat spot on the last day of the regular-season. It was the biggest deficit any MLB team had to make up in September to claim a playoff spot.

Tampa Bay, which started the season at 0-6, won its final five games to earn the playoff berth. They lost in the second round to Texas.

According to the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, Maddon earned 26 of 28 first place votes for 133 points.
