Biographical Information[edit]

Mike Everitt began his professional umpiring career in the 1987 Gulf Coast League. He moved up to the Midwest League (1988, 1990-1991), Eastern League (1992), Texas League (1993-1994), Venezuelan Winter League (1994-1995) and Pacific Coast League (1995-1999). On July 22, 1996, in his first season as a fill-in umpire in the American League, he mistakenly gave Jim Thome a walk on three balls by losing track of the count.

He joined the MLB staff in 2000, following the failed mass resignation ploy by the Major League Umpires Association. He worked Kevin Millwood's no-hitter in 2003, the 2006 All-Star Game, and the 2007, 2009 and 2015 World Series. He retired after the 2019 season, having reached the rank of crew chief.

As a teenager, Everitt won a couple of New Mexico state trumpet competitions.
