Ever See A Little League Umpire Rip Off Gear To Fight A Coach? [VIDEO]

By         Posted in   Baseball, Video

This video might be old, but it’s new to us so it’s getting play today as all eyes descend upon Kansas City for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game. Of course you’ve seen pissed off Little League coaches screaming at umpires. Those videos are a dime a dozen. What about a pissed off umpire ripping off his gear to fight a coach? Ever see that? No? Now you have.

The lesson here, kids, is to be careful which umpire you talk sh*t to. Some of them don’t care if they lose a $25/game stipend.

Premise of Video: Umpire is tired of Coach A riding him for a missed call or balls & strikes. Umpire, being the grownup, decides the best way to end his umpiring career at the Little League level is to take off his protection and whip that ass.

Climax of Video: The video guy trying to get a better angle. Multiple times.

Conclusion: Cooler heads prevailed. Isn’t ripping off the gear the dumb move here? You totally prevent Coach A from landing rib shots, limiting your opponent’s ability to work the body. Dumb umpire.
