Run, don’t walk, to Deadspin’s post about Mitch Williams getting booted from a child’s baseball game for arguing with the umpire — because the pics of Williams all up in the ump’s grill are extraordinary.
Deadspin quotes a witness to the event:
He has been arguing balls and strikes and was upset about a play at the plate where his team was called out. In the top of the 5th while he was coaching first base he yelled to another parent that he would have the umpire fired. The Umpire confronted him and Mitch went off. He threatened the umpire called him a motherfucker in front of 10 year olds. They were faced to face inches from each other arguing. He had to be restrained by other coaches. The umpire rightfully kicked him out.
Willams, though, denied wrongdoing on Twitter:
Deadspin adds: “Williams coaches his son’s 10U Jersey Wild team, which was participating in a Ripken Baseball tournament in Aberdeen, Md.” Wild Thing, you make everything groovy.
