VIDEO: Miguel Cabrera Gets Reaction Out of Ump After Heckling From Dugout
Tempers flared early on Sunday during the Detroit Tigers' matchup against the Texas Rangers. A low strike call from home plate umpire Jansen Visconti that led to a Robbie Grossman strikeout sent A.J. Hinch into a frenzy, and the Tigers' manager ended up getting ejected for his animated reaction.
It wasn't just Hinch who was bothered by the call, though. Veteran Miguel Cabrera heckled Visconti after the exchange and even got a big reaction out of the home plate ump.
Visconti could be heard on the TV broadcast yelling at Miggy to "knock it off" after the the star kept going at him. Cabrera was apparently in the dugout sarcastically cheering Visconti's correct calls, which clearly annoyed the ump.
It's hilarious to see Miggy's reactions upset Visconti so much, who also said "I'm not doing it!" in regards to going back and forth with the star. Good on Cabrera for sticking up for his teammate and not being afraid to speak his mind on what was a clearly a miss by the ump.
It remains to be seen if Detroit can rally behind its manager in order to get the win. Things are currently knotted up at 3-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning.
