Arthur Joseph "Artie" Gore (November 13, 1907 – September 29, 1986) was a professional baseball umpire who worked in the National League from 1947 to 1956. Gore umpired 1,464 major league games in his 10-year career. He umpired in two World Series and two All-Star Games. Gore played minor league baseball in 1928 and 1929 as a shortstop.[1]

Umpiring career[edit]

Before being promoted to the major leagues in 1947, Gore umpired in the Canadian-American League in 1937 and 1938, in the Eastern League from 1939 to 1942, and in the International League from 1942 to 1946.[2] He umpired in the 1951 and 1953 World Series and two All-Star Games (1949 and 1956).[3]

In December 1956, NL president Warren Giles released Gore from the league to make room for younger umpires Ken Burkhart and Tony Venzon.[2]

Later life[edit]

Gore moved to New Hampshire in his later years. He died there after a brief illness in September 1986. He was 78.[4]
