Lucky Ump

MLB Umpire Eric Cooper has had his share of Buehrle’s noteworthy pitching efforts.

How’s this for strange? (Umpire Eric) Cooper has been behind the plate for each of Buehrle’s last three shutouts — the perfect game Thursday, the no-hitter April 18, 2007, at U.S. Cellular Field against the Texas Rangers and a 6-0 victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 17, 2005, at the Cell.

Hope Mark Buehrle isn’t superstitious… he might start putting in requests for Cooper for his future starts.
