Veteran umpire Joe West is well-known in baseball circles — and loads of occasions it is for the fallacious causes. File what’s coming under underneath the “fallacious purpose” label as effectively. 

Throughout Sunday’s Nationals-Braves (ATL 10, WAS 3) bout in Atlanta, West appeared to eject Nationals president and basic supervisor Mike Rizzo, who was sitting in a collection excessive above residence plate. West even referred to as safety. 

The transferring footage: 

Studies from these on the scene point out Rizzo was within the third deck. To reiterate: Joe West ejected somebody for yelling at him from the third deck. It is unclear precisely what sparked the ejection, however West repeatedly informed him to “get out.”

Man, that is simply unhappy, is not it? As somebody who always ignores vitriol on social media after years of getting labored up about it, take it from me: Your life turns into a lot simpler if you merely ignore the yelling. I can not even think about it was very loud coming from three decks away, both. Be higher than this, Joe. 

West has been a full-time umpire since 1978 and is president of the MLB Umpires Affiliation. Ready of authority, he must be higher than this.
