Interesting. Class of 86.

2 umpires that started together, Tim Tschida and Dale Scott full time in the AL in 1986.

Here is the quote from Tschida's retirement.

TT: I’ve had some concussions and some upper-neck injuries over the years. I’ve spoken to a couple of experts who’ve said, “You’re one hard foul tip away from quality-of-life issues.”

Looks like Scott will go out for about the same reasons.

And, of course the 2 NL umpires that started full time from 1986, Greg Bonin and Tom Hallion, in which Bonin had to leave the game for about the same reasons as Tschida and Scott.

Only Hallion left of the 4 full time hires in 1986.

Just saw a FB post from a friend and fellow umpire from here in Portland that knows Dale. Said that Scott sent an email out to friends and family saying he is hanging up the mask.

I can only imagine how scary that last concussion had to have been being taken off on a backboard and a neckbrace.

Why doesn't MLB promote an umpire to replace him instead of using a fill in each week?

Because he hasn't officially retired.

That's correct.  I got an email from him a couple weeks ago saying he's taking the summer off and will reevaluate his health before next season.  First summer off for him since 1980!!
