Have you ever heard a more impressive “Whoomp, there is is!” strike three call than this one? What’s that? You’ve never in your life heard a “Whoomp, there it is!” strike three call? Exactly, which is why this guy is the man.
There have been plenty of recreational league umpires who try to make a name for themselves with enthusiastic called third strike shenanigans. Typically that involves flailing one’s arms and raising one’s voice, but the gentleman you see above took it to the next level. Yelling just wasn’t going to cut it, so he decided to bring “Tag Team” into the mix. For that, we salute him.
PS: Anyone else thinking “D2: The Mighty Ducks?” I know I am.
