VIDEO: Hey Ump, What Are You Doing?


On Wednesday, Diamondbacks' pitcher Madison Bumgarner was ejected following a routine illegal substance inspection following the first inning of Arizona's game vs. the Miami Marlins. These checks are standard; however, what this umpire did was not. Rather than looking down at the pitcher's hand, the ump looked directly into Bumgarner's eyes while doing the inspection. Bumgarner felt uncomfortable, said something, proceeded to walk away, and then got tossed. Weird right?
