Biographical Information[edit]

Larry Young became a major league umpire in 1983, when he worked his first games in the American League. He joined the league's full-time staff in 1986, then moved to the consolidated major league umpiring staff in 2000 when the two leagues merged their umpiring crews. He was designated a crew chief at some point and retired after the 2007 season, having worked a total of 2,848 regular season games. He also worked in all types of postseason series that existed during his career, and twice at the All-Star Game.

He seemed to have had a very short fuse, as he ejected a total of 69 persons during his career, a total which is very high for the period when he was active.

He began his professional umpiring career in the Midwest League in 1978. He later worked in the Eastern League and the American Association and was on the American Association when he was shuttling between AAA and the majors his first three seasons as an American League official.
