Video: Yorvit Torrealba Pushes Umpire in Face During Venezuelan Game
Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba was upset with an umpire’s call during a Venezuelan Winter League game between Caribes and Caracas, and he responded by pushing the umpire in the face. His actions were similar to Michael Beasley who “mushed” a fan over the summer, only this had much more force. Here’s a video of the incident:
The only good thing we can say about this incident is at least it wasn’t as bad as what Jose Offerman did to a Dominican League umpire, though the two are pretty close.
Forearm bash to Hardball Talk for sharing the video.
