Umpires and officials take tons of crap and much of it is unwarranted, but there are umps out there that they should probably hang it up.
Like the home plate and first base working the Diablos Rojos del México and the Algodoneros de Union Laguna Mexican League game a couple days ago that pulled off what can safely be called the worst single call in the history of baseball.
After a full swing and miss by the batter the ump behind the dish incredibly checks down at first, to which the first base ump gives the safe signal indicating the batter held up. It’s basically the real life version of the Frank Drebin in Naked Gun.
Both of these yuks have been suspended and should probably hope they don’t get indicted on fixing charges.
Hey it’s Enrico Palazzo!
