Player Biography
Bill McGowan was an exception to the old adage that fans don’t pay to see the umpire. He introduced a colorful umpiring style with aggressive body gestures that bordered on the pugnacious. Yet McGowan ejected very few players. His enthusiasm never waned over 30 American League seasons, while his hustle and skill commanded the players’ respect. In 1933, McGowan was selected to be a member of the umpiring crew that worked the initial All-Star Game. He was an iron man among umpires – not missing an inning for 16 years, spanning 2,541 consecutive games.
