I own one of Harry's NL ump jackets from the 70's/80's... HUGE jacket.

He's one of those umpires who was a memorable part of baseball for a long enough time (and his umpire school has trained a number of current umps going back to the 70's) he probably deserves a spot in the HOF.

This was a good tribute:

RIP.
