Baseball never forgets, and after the Dodgers’ Chase Utley broke Mets second baseman Ruben Tejada’s leg with a takeout slide in the 2015 playoffs, it was only a matter of time before the unwritten rules of baseball caught up with him.
When the two teams met for the first time in the 2016 season, New York fireballer Noah Syndergaard unleashed a 99 MPH fastball behind Utley to send a message. Thor was immediately tossed for the pitch, but a recently discovered uncensored video of a mic’d up crew chief Tom Hallion dealing with Syndergaard and an irate – former manager – Terry Collins in the aftermath is making the rounds on the interwebs and it’s a helluva watch.
So you want to be a major league baseball umpire? Watch this and it might make you reconsider.
