Cooper's memory will be honored during this year's World Series, Manfred added.

MLBPA executive director Tony Clark also issued a statement on Sunday.

"Eric Cooper's friendly and familiar presence in the baseball community will be missed by all of us. He was a professional and gentleman whose passion for our game, the players, and his fellow umpires was evident in the way he went about his work and life. ... Players extend their deepest condolences to his family and friends."

Over the course of his career, Cooper served as the home plate umpire for three no-hitters, two of which were thrown by Mark Buehrle. He also worked the Hideo Nomo no-hitter in 2001. The Iowa native umped several wild-card games, 10 division series, four league championships, and one World Series.
