Minnesota steakhouse played hilarious prank on umpire Joe West
Longtime umpire Joe West moved into second place all-time on Wednesday among MLB umpires when he worked his 5,164th game, and the city that hosted him when he reached the milestone had a fantastic way of celebrating it.
West dined at Manny’s Steakhouse in Minneapolis earlier this week, and the restaurant had a custom menu made for him. It was all braille.
Esta tarde, durante el partido entre @twinsbeisbol y @piratasbeisbol, el árbitro Joe West arribó a una marca histórica. #Corte4 trajo los detalles, además de un acercamiento a la exitosa y larga carrera de Joe en @LasMayores

Like any longtime MLB ump, West has drawn plenty of criticism over bad calls in the past. That’s all part of the job, and he almost certainly got a laugh out of the prank Manny’s played on him.
