Gary Darling will serve as the crew chief. Tom Hallion, who was the crew chief for the just-finished Tigers series in Miami, will also be on the crew. Bucknor, Mike DiMuro, Jim Reynolds and Mark Wegner round out the roster.
Darling will be the home plate umpire for Game 1, with Bucknor the first base umpire, the scene of a rather infamous recent mistake.

The game is not called "Tag You're It!" It is called baseball. You kind of need the baseball when tagging a runner out. Hopefully Bucknor realizes that now, because MLB cannot afford to have any more awful playoff calls replayed over and over and over, ad nauseum.
