Baseball has to be full of the most sensitive people on earth.

The ump probably thought he was showing him where the pitch was... inside. He thought he was “showing him up!”

The line he drew was perpendicular to the path of the ball. Don’t think he was showing the umpire up in that way. Player had to have said something or this umpire is an idiot.

If he drew a line, that's an automatic ejection. It's petty, but they warn coaches at the plate meeting. Don't argue balls and strikes. Drawing a line is always an immediate ejection.

Fremont, guess you have never done it. Stupid is commenting on something you know nothing about.

Ump should go back to ten and under travel ball

I heard after the bad call, he told the umpire "this is how many inches I'm putting in your wife tonight". Then, proceeded to draw the line.

I watched this about a dozen times earlier and I just don’t get it. If you watch the batter, his body language is not out of the ordinary. He honestly looks like he barely reacts to the call. Even the line he may or may not have drawn is questionable because it’s so quick and he’s looking towards the outfield when it occurs. All I’m seeing is that he drops the bat head and then taps his cleats off in one motion as he begins stepping out of the box.

Only way I could see this happening is if the player said something to the Umpire.

I suspect the ump thought he was drawing a line as to where the batter thought the pitch was.

This. It’s common to see a batter unhappy with a call draw the pitch path in the dirt to call out the ump. I don’t think that’s what this kid did, but I’d bet that’s what the ump thought he did

Umpires have little to no accountability. If you wanna see bad, watch NCAA softball.

Never in all my life have I seen such. Batter bound to have said something.

Umpire should be suspended.

You probably never played past little league. Drawing a line to show up the umpire is always an ejection. The batter is a douche and knows this. He tried to get away with it.

This guy legit responds to every single negative opinion about umpires.

He had to have said something! Only way that happened

That umpire should never call a game again

It looks like even the catcher was looking at the ump like WTF?. Unless the batter said something that sure was a BS ejection
Reply2 months
Probably muttered "FU ump" under his breath.

WTF?
