Yeah I saw that. Not the first time this kid got in trouble with an ump. On another occasion he chest bumped an ump. Kid needs to learn how to control himself.

Have you heard his statement about the run-in with the ump?

He was "in the heat of the moment."

Yeah, in the heat of the moment in the first inning. This won't be the last time the kid get's a call he doesn't like, he has got a lot of growing up to do.

I just seen it a few minutes ago on the local sports report and I agree with tony that this guy needs to be suspended for a significant period of time.

This is the type of behavior that warrants a punishment where Young is made an example of.

It's sad to say but I honestly believe that with some of the younger jerk athletes entering into advanced level sports you're going to see players throwing balls, bats and etc. at the officials.........and I think it's not too far fetched to think that we'll start seeing physical assaults on umpires and referees from players when they feel they've gotten bad calls.

It's the umpire's fault. That was a ticky-tacky strike. Sure it was a strike according to the rulebook, but he should have let it go and called it a ball, instead of screwing Young over and stealing a strikeout for the pitcher.

There is still no room to throw a bat at an ump, he intentionally tried to hit him with a bat!!! he will most likely be suspended a minimum of 50 games

Jeez if you want to throw your bat throw it at the ground. Not the ump. What was he thinking! He has to carry himself better than that.
