Player Biography
Colorful and flamboyant, Bill Klem brought dignity and respect to his profession. Known as “The Old Arbitrator,” he umpired almost exclusively behind the plate his first 16 years because of his superior ability to call balls and strikes. Klem was among the first to use arm signals to coincide with his calls. Proof of his skill and universal respect were his 18 World Series assignments. Klem umpired from 1905 to 1941 and then served as chief of National League umpires. When honored at the Polo Grounds on Sept. 2, 1949, he declared: “Baseball to me is not a game; it is a religion.”
