Wisden obituary
Herbert George Baldwin played as a professional batsman for Surrey from 1922 to 1930, though appearing infrequently, in the Championship side. Son of H. Baldwin, the Hampshire all-rounder, Harry was a splendid fieldsman at cover-point. For nearly thirty years after giving up playing, he served as a first-class umpire, standing in nine Test matches between 1946 and 1953. He created a sensation in 1938 when he no-balled E. L. McCormick, the Australian fast bowler, no fewer than nineteen times in three overs in the opening match of the tour against Worcestershire at Worcester. McCormick lost his run-up and he apologised to Baldwin for causing him so much trouble.
