Just saying this minor league coach snapped is an understatement. Just imagine if he wore a chicken suit and did all this. It could have passed for the 7th inning stretch entertainment. It was that comical. It all started when the called Roger Clemens' kid safe at second base.
He runs out and starts to argue. Typical. Then he decides to dive head first into second base. Hilarious. He then pulls up second base and shows it to the umpire. Okay. He goes into the dugout to heave bats onto the field. My favorite part is watching the little bat boy stay focused on doing his job. He looks to make sure if anymore bats are going to be thrown before he heads that way.
This coach is awesome. He told the umpire,
"I could get two mannequins at Sears and umpire better than what I saw this whole series."
We wish we would have thought of that line first. But at least he didn't complete go nuts.
"I don't think I ever lost total control, though it may look like it. It was just frustration, and I obviously went a little bit too far. I apologize to fans and to the umpires for my actions, and I regret what happened."
Wait..that wasn't losing control?
