MLB commissioner explains why viral Terry Collins video was scrubbed

Terry Collins

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred explained on Thursday why a viral video of Terry Collins was scrubbed from the internet.

On Tuesday night, video emerged of the former New York Mets manager’s conversation with umpire Adam Hamari during a 2016 ejection. The never-before-seen video showed all parties exchanging profanities, but it was so entertaining that it gained plenty of steam and was widely shared.

Then all the fun came to an end less than 24 hours later when the video was removed due to copyright claims. Manfred says the video was removed because the leak violates terms of the CBA, which says those videos of mic’d up umpires would not be made public.

It’s unfortunate for those who never got to see the entertaining video, but that’s a more than legitimate reason for being protective of it.
