Gerry Davis, a 26-year umpire, will serve as crew chief for the World Series. He’ll be behind the plate for Game 1. You may remember that Major League Baseball usually includes one umpire who will be calling his first World Series, but they decided to change that after a series of blown calls in the first two rounds this year. Everyone on this crew has World Series experience.

Here’s how the umpires line up for Game 1, with their postseason experience.

HP Gerry Davis 9 DS; 7 LCS; 3 WS
1B Jeff Nelson 5 DS; 2 LCS; 1 WS
2B Brian Gorman 8 DS; 3 LCS; 1 WS
3B Mike Everitt 6 DS; 3 LCS; 1 WS
LF Dana DeMuth 6 DS; 5 LCS; 3 WS
RF Joe West 5 DS; 7 LCS; 3 WS
