First base umpire Dan Bellino examined Bumgarner’s pitching hand, however took exceedingly lengthy to finish the verify. Throughout this time he awkwardly stared on the pitcher, in a surreal scene.
Then, because the verify was accomplished, Bumgarner made an unknown remark to the umpire, resulting in him being tossed and blowing up on the best way out, yelling “f*** you!” and needing to be restrained by the dugout to cease him escalating the scenario. Regardless of the incident now being over, there are a number of questions remaining.
