Paul Lewis Emmel (born May 2, 1968) is an American umpire in Major League Baseball (MLB). He worked in the National League in 1999, and has worked throughout both major leagues since 2000 – he wears #50 on his uniform. Emmel was named a crew chief in February 2017 by MLB; he is joined on his 2017 crew by Brian O'Nora, Quinn Wolcott, and Scott Barry.


Prior to reaching the major leagues in 1999, Emmel worked in the New York–Penn League (1992–1993), South Atlantic League (1994), California League (1995), Florida State League (1996), Eastern League (1996–1997), and International League (1998).


Emmel ejected Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox from Game 2 of the 2010 NLDS for disputing an out call on the grounds that San Francisco Giants first baseman Aubrey Huff had come off of first base.[1]

Notable games

Emmel has umpired two All-Star Games (2002, 2013); two Wild Card Games (2014, 2015); eight Division Series (2002, 2003, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013); three League Championship Series (2007, 2014, 2015); and the 2013 World Series. He has also officiated in two World Baseball Classics (2009, 2013).

Emmel was the second base umpire when Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander threw a no-hitter at Comerica Park against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 12, 2007.[2] Five days prior to Verlander's no-hitter, Emmel was also at second base in a game between the Boston Red Sox and the Oakland Athletics in which Boston pitcher Curt Schilling had a no-hitter until Shannon Stewart broke up the no-hitter with a single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning.[3]

On May 8, 2012, Emmel was the plate umpire for Josh Hamilton's four-homer game.[4]

On June 23, 2016, Emmel suffered a scalp laceration requiring stitches after being struck by an errant bat, which slipped from the grasp of Los Angeles Angels' pinch hitter Jefry Marté during a swinging strike, in a game between the Angels and the Oakland Athletics.[5]

On September 1, 2019, Emmel was the home plate umpire when Justin Verlander threw a no-hitter against The Toronto Blue Jays.

Emmel is a graduate of Central Michigan University with a B.A. in finance (1991). He has two children.
