Well … somebody should lose their umpire card.
A college baseball game between New Orleans and Mississippi Valley State ended in a very contentious fashion after an umpire waged a vendetta against a Valley player. The viral clip has set the social media world ablaze.
In the ninth inning, New Orleans was leading the series opener against Mississippi Valley State, 7-3, with the Delta Devils appearing to have some life in an attempt to claw their way to a rally. However, the umpire would completely kill that momentum with a “strike three and you’re out” situation — but with a horrendously bad call. And it left MSVU’s Davon Mims absolutely livid.
Mims, who is a left fielder for Mississippi Valley State, came up to the plate with two outs, being the last hope for MSVU. During the at-bat, the count got to 1-1, with the next pitch being called a strike — though it was very borderline and could have gone either way. With the tension of the game at a boiling point, Mims jumped up and down in disagreement with the umpire and pointed out with his bat where he felt the pitch landed.
Well, let’s just say, the umpire was not happy whatsoever with his strike zone being questioned:
