Umpire Satch Davidson, behind the plate for historic homers by Aaron and Fisk, dies at 75

Longtime National League umpire Satch Davidson has died at 75.

Davidson's family says he died Saturday at his home in Houston. The family did not give a cause of death.

Davidson was the home plate umpire for two of the most famous home runs in baseball history. He had a first-hand look when Hank Aaron hit his 715th homer in 1974 to break Babe Ruth's record. And he was behind the plate in 1975 when Carlton Fisk's shot won Game 6 of the World Series.

Davidson was an NL umpire from 1969 through 1984.
