Umpire of the Year: Jim Joyce (66)
Jim Joyce is the Umpire Fantasy League's 2009 Umpire of the Year.

Joyce finished the 2009 season with three ejections, none of which was attributed to an incorrect call. Served as Acting Crew Chief several times during the season when regular season crew chiefs were unavailable due to injury or vacation.
