Biographical Information[edit]

He then worked some American League games in 1952 and 1953, switching leagues in May of 1952.

Robb began umpiring in the Cape Breton Colliery League in 1937-1939. He worked the International League in 1942, 1946 and 1947, missing 1944-1945 in the military service in the United States Navy.
