Murray Service’s many years behind the plate and patrolling the base paths earned him induction into Baseball Alberta’s Umpire Hall of Fame. He was one of four inaugural inductees honoured in 1998. Since 1988, the umpire-of-the-year award in Alberta has carried his name. He began umpiring in 1952. Away from the diamond, he worked for Trans-Alta Utilities for 37 years.
