Video: Langley's Brett Lawrie goes berserk over umpire's calls
The pride of Langley, Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie, is likely to be suspended after a temper tantrum in the ninth inning of yesterday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Doing his best impersonation of former New York Yankee player and manager Billy Martin, Lawrie fired his helmet after home-plate umpire Bill Miller called strikes on two pitches that Lawrie believed were out of the zone.
Unfortunately for Lawrie, his helmet bounced off the ground and hit Miller on the hip. Later, a fan threw a cup of beer at Miller, and the Jays lost 4-3.
Brett Lawrie has a hissy fit over umpire's calls.
Lawrie, 22, later apologized for letting his emotions get the best of him.
