Clayton Kershaw wasn’t happy one bit with the home plate umpire after he thought he missed a strike three call before giving up a base hit to the same batter.
In frustration, Kershaw picked up the ball and fired a strike into the dugout.
Thankfully nobody was in the way of Kershaw’s throw. The alleged missed call wasn’t awful by any means, it was a pitch that was borderline and could have gone either way depending on the umpire.
Pitching can be a frustrating job that I can never pretend to have had in my lifetime, so I can’t blame Kershaw for getting a little hot under the collar when a close call doesn’t go his way.
