Umpire works his 4,000th game

Major League umpire Mike Reilly worked his 4,000th game on Tuesday. Reilly was the first base umpire for the game between the Angels and Tigers. No official records are kept on umpires and how many games they have worked but it's believed that Reilly ranks third among active managers behind Bruce Froemming and Ed Montague.

Reilly had no close calls on Tuesday as he worked the game before a group of about 100 who made the trip from his hometown of Battle Creek to Comerica Park
