Wally Backman Was Wired For Sound

Umpire arguments are each timeless classics in their own way, and this next video featuring minor league manager Wally Backman is no exception. The South Georgia Peanuts skipper takes umbrage with a home run call in this undated video (“THAT AIN’T EVEN F*CKING CLOSE!”) and the umpire wastes no time in throwing Backman out of the game. Backman would later claim that the ball was “legitimately…probably ten feet foul.” But the argument was legitimately probably awesome.
