Umpire Ejects Entire Crowd of 100+

An umpire has emptied the stands at a high school baseball game, ejecting the entire crowd of more than 100 fans for being unruly.

Umpire Don Briggs said he had no problem with any of the student athletes during Thursday's game between Winfield-Mount Union and West Burlington.

He said he had to take action because fans were being unruly, yelling and arguing, and called police as a precaution.

However, West Burlington superintendent James Sleister said he didn't see any unusual behavior and said he thought the umpire overreacted.

The game resumed after a 40-minute delay. West Burlington won 12-11.

haha why not? It'd be the only time it could happen. Some games last season I think we were the only ones there. Even some of the media didn't bother showing up. We've had many conversations with the ref lol in fact I think Nunzio declared his love for one last year lol

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
