Biographical Information[edit]

Dick Tremblay began working as an umpire in the Florida State League in 1965. In 1966, he moved to the Carolina League and was promoted to the Southern League midway through the 1967 season. He worked in the International League in 1969 and in July of 1970 was brought up to the National League, where he worked the remainder of the season, for a total of 61 games. He was apparently an injury replacement, as he was back in the I.L. in 1971, then left the professional ranks. However, in 1979, he was one of the umpires brought in to serve as replacements when the regular umpires went on strike at the start of the season. Given his significant experience, he was used regularly during the six weeks the labor conflict lasted, working a total of 29 games, with 24 of these coming at the two most strategic spots on the diamond, home plate and first base.
