WATCH: ChiSox Pitcher Lance Lynn Ejected for Throwing Belt Toward Umpire

The thinnest-skinned humans on the planet have to be Major League Baseball umpires.

What else explains the events that took place in Wednesday night's Chicago White Sox-Oakland A's game?

White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn walks off the mound after completing his fourth inning, and as is becoming customary, the umpires want to check Lynn for foreign substances.

In this case, however, as you see in the first video below, the umpire, Nic Lentz, arrives a little late, and by that time, Lynn leaves his hat and glove on the dugout railing for the umpire to inspect. Then a few seconds later, you see a belt flying out of the dugout in the direction of the Lentz, whose feelings obviously were hurt because Lynn couldn't walk up and present the belt to him.

Lentz proceeded to eject Lynn.

For his part, Lynn says that he had to head off to the trainer's room to deal with a minor issue between innings, which is the reason why he threw the belt on the field.

Lynn states the obvious: "He's late getting over there...Obviously, I hurt his feelings."
