MLB umpire Runge fired following failed drug test
NEW YORK (AP) — A Major League Baseball umpire was recently dismissed for what was believed to be the first known drug ouster among umps, two people familiar with the situation told The AP.
MLB announced on June 14 that Brian Runge was no longer on the staff and that a Triple-A umpire had been promoted, but didn’t give a reason.
Only once since 2000 had such a change been made in midseason, and that was because of an injury.
