Mike Redmond kicks dirt around home plate after ejection (Video)
Mike Redmond went classic manager meltdown on us last night after he was ejected for arguing balls and strikes during the sixth inning of a game between the Miami Marlins and Philadelphia Phillies. Redmond was unhappy with a called third strike on shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria that appeared to be high and inside, so he started cursing at home plate umpire Will Little from the dugout. That resulted in an automatic ejection.
Fortunately for us, Redmond got his money’s worth. He came out of the dugout to state his case to Little and then began kicking dirt around home plate to show how far inside he felt the pitch was. He looked like Lou Piniella out there. Check out this awesome GIF that @CrashburnAlley passed along.
That will easily be one of the best GIFs of the year.
“I tried to be patient, but at the end of the day I couldn’t watch anymore,” Redmond told reporters after the game.
