One Of The 2019 World Series Officials Is From Las Cruces
A Las Cruces native will be keeping things legit tonight.
The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros play game 2 of the World Series tonight and Las Crucean Doug Eddings ... far-right in the photo ... will be making sure things are by the book. KVIA posted this brief bio:
Eddings, an alumnus of Mayfield High School and New Mexico State University, began umpiring Little League games at the age of 14, and in his early career he worked throughout the minor leagues for roughly ten years.
He started working American League games in 1998, and has worked throughout both major leagues since 2000. In the postseason, he's umpired at various All-Star games and playoff series -- including this year's NLDS.
Eddings still resides in the Las Cruces area with his wife and family, and he enjoys golfing and motorcycle riding when he's not behind the plate calling balls and strikes.
Eddings is expected to be behind home plate during tonight's game. For more about him, click here.
