Believe it or not this has happened in MLB. Back in 1961 I think, the NL called up a couple of umps from the minors in preparation for next years expansion. So there were a couple of 5 men crews. Al Barlick, the crew chief, used to station the 5th man in CF in Wrigley Field to help on fan interference. This was before they put up the fencing that now prevents fans from leaning over.
