VIDEO: Kyle Schwarber Charges Umpire After Being Called Out on Check-Swing to End Cubs Game

Mark Powell 17 hrs ago

​​Kyle Schwarber, there's a likely suspension coming your way. After the ​Cubs slugger was called out on a check-swing to end another Chicago defeat, he charged third-base umpire Gabe Morales and was promptly thrown out...after the game was already over.

Surely there's room for reasonable discourse between umpires and players over a call or two, but this level of pure madness is never okay, as Morales was fearful Schwarber would resort to violence given his rash reaction.

Was the call questionable? Absolutely. Schwarber really isn't one to lose his cool like this, as his usual calm demeanor was nowhere to be found in this moment of pure vitriol.

Schwarber is one of the most recognizable nam​​es in the game, and this definitely isn't what MLB is looking for in terms of how he should carry himself in the heat of the moment.

Looking at 3 game suspension I would say.

Bad call, imo. I've seen guys go further around and not get a called whiff.

That is what I thought too. And Schwarber is usually pretty paid back kind of guy.

Still, this will not sit well with the league and we can expect he will get a suspension. ;)

They shouldn't hire umpires who "fear for their lives" when a call is challenged.

We don't need pussies playing or calling any sporting events.

That Ump may need to go back to Umpire school. ;)

Back when, it was all good until a player, or coach or manager, physically touched an umpire.

Guess like most things, times have changed.
