Minor League Umpire Ejects Music Guy For Playing “Three Bling Mice” Over The PA (Video)
We told you earlier today how it’s been a tough year for baseball umpires, who have just been inundated with all kinds of nonsense that most of us never have to deal with at work.
Well, it seems that at least one minor league baseball umpire had seen/heard enough. So the other day, when “Three Blind Mice” came on over the PA after a questionable call, the guy lost it…and ejected the music guy!
The ump’s name is Mario Seneca, and the game in question was between the high-A Daytona Cubs and the Fort Myers Miracles at Daytona’s Jackie Robinson Ballpark.
You’ve got to see it to believe it:
I’ve been a baseball fan my whole life, and I’ve seen umpires eject players, managers, and even fans. But I have never seen an umpire eject the music guy. And judging by their reaction, neither had the Cubs’ announcers. I mean, what it this? Soviet Russia?
Anyway, the guy who got ejected was a 21-year-old intern from the University of Illinois named Derek Dye. And like pretty much anyone under the age of 40, he took to Twitter to give us his thoughts on the matter:
As you can see, Derek kept the whole thing in perspective. It’s a shame we can’t say the same for Mario Senaca.
Oh, and that reminds me…congratulations, Mario! You’re the new “biggest baby in pro sports.” I’m sure your parents must be proud.
But seriously, the league has to suspend Seneca, right? Ejecting a music guy/intern? That’s nuts!
