VIDEO: Most outrageous umpire strike three call of all-time
This video was just posted to YouTube and it contains and umpire going utterly crazy on a strike three call -- three different times.
Internet commenters, Facebook users and tweeters far and wide, prepare to unite with your contempt along with a side helping of sanctimony before viewing this clip of what appears to be a high school (JV, maybe?) umpire:
Wow. That's ... probably a bit much?
I mean, I'm all for entertainment and everything, but as someone who used to officiate high school football, I'd be pretty embarrassed to work with a guy putting on a show like this. I do hope that he never ejects any player or coach for "showing him up."
Otherwise, in the grand scheme of life, it's probably pretty harmless.
So long as he's umpiring, though, shouldn't we find a way to have him work a game with a Mitch Williams coached team involved (assuming cameras are present, that is)?
