Hunter Wendelstedt    

MLB Umpire

Harry Hunter Wendelstedt III is a baseball umpire who has worked in the National League in 1998–1999 and throughout both major leagues since 2000. His father Harry Hunter Wendelstedt, Jr. was an NL umpire from 1966 to 1998. Hunter Wendelstedt goes by his middle name to avoid confusion with his father.

Wendelstedt has worked one All-Star Game (2011), one Wild Card Game (2015), four Division Series (2003, 2010, 2013, 2014), three League Championship Series (2006, 2015, 2017), and one World Series (2014). He also officiated in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.

As his career began just as his father was retiring, Hunter Wendelstedt wears the same number as his father did, 21. The Wendelstedts are the only father-son pair to have umpired a Major League game together, an event that occurred over several series in 1998.
