Biographical Information[edit]

Bill Hohn was a major league umpire for over 20 years. He started off in the 1977 Gulf Coast League, moving up to the Florida State League (1978) and Southern League (1979-1980). From 1981-1986, he worked the Pacific Coast League, spending the winter of 1982-1983 in the Puerto Rican League.

He was promoted to the International League in 1987 and to the National League full time in 1989, although he had already worked some games in the senior circuit in 1987 and 1988. He worked the 1994 All-Star Game. He resigned in 1999 as part of the Major League Umpires Association's failed mass resignation plot, but he was reinstated to the big league staff with back-pay in 2002. On May 31, 2010, he ejected Roy Oswalt after the pitcher yelled at himself in disgust after throwing a ball. Hohn was reprimanded by Bob Watson of the Commissioner's office the next day. He retired at the end of that season.
