The officiating crew for the game will be led by crew chief James Williams. He will be joined by referee Sean Wright and umpire Pat Fraher. Sean Corbin will serve as the alternate.
Williams spent the majority of the season as a crew member (45 games) but did get some opportunity to be the chief (18 games). He called a pretty even game, only favoring the home team by 0.1 points and calling only 0.9 more fouls per game on the away team. The average point total of games with Williams as the crew chief is 225.2. The total for Wednesday’s game is set at 220, suggesting the over should be favored.
