Phillip Wellman: Tantrum Hall of Fame

Phillip Wellman is a Double A baseball manager. He disagreed with a ruling by the home plate empire and erupted into a tantrum:

“Wellman threw his hat, then began shouting and framing the face of the umpire with his hands about 6 inches apart.

After that, he got down on one knee, piled dirt on home plate and used a finger to outline the shape of the plate. He stalked to third base, pulled up the bag and walked toward second, and tossed third base into the outfield.”

And, of course, Phillip Wellman’s outburst will now live on – forever – on YouTube. It’s a classic.
