MLB Ump Performs CPR, Saves Woman at Ballgame
There are plenty of professions that you think of when you try to name jobs that are tasked with saving people’s lives: police officer, doctor, EMT, firefighter, soldier. But what about a Major League Baseball umpire? An Arizona woman has one to thank.
FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter has the story:
In nearly a quarter-century umpiring Major League Baseball games, Jim Joyce became known for blowing the call two years ago that cost Detroit pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game – and owning up to it. This week, he also became known for saving a woman’s life.
(Game Broadcasters) “That man is, without a doubt, a hero…”
…That was on FOX Sports Arizona. As Joyce was arriving at Chase Field for a game, a longtime employee of the Arizona Diamondbacks suffered a heart attack. Joyce was nearby and gave Jayne Powers CPR, staying with her until an ambulance arrived.
Doctors expect Powers to recover. Joyce said it’s not the first time he performed CPR; he says everyone should learn it.
