Little League World Series ump’s emphatic strike three call really something (vid)

During a game between teams representing the fine states of Delaware and California in Little League World Series action, the home plate umpire rung up a young man with a strike three call that is unabashedly over the top.

If it wasn’t bad enough for this poor kid to strike out on such a grand stage, this umpire felt it necessary to become part of the action by emphatically punching his arm and kicking his leg to let the kid know that he shouldn’t have left his bat on his shoulder.

Something tells me this guy sucked big time at baseball and now is using his position as an LLWS umpire to exact revenge on the sport that wronged him so. Either that or he’s just a demonstrative douchenozzle.
