Derek Dye, a 21-year old senior at the University of Illinois and an intern for the Daytona Cubs, was thrown out of a high Class A game last night against the Fort Myers Miracle by umpire Mario Seneca¬†for playing the tune to Three Blind Mice over the Jackie Robinson Ballpark P.A. system while a call was being disputed by the home team’s manager.

I previously believed only politicians to be capable of misusing their authority in such a foolish manner. Can we get a Kickstarter set up to buy this umpire a sense of humor, or, at the very least, some counselling so that he may, in fact, get over himself.
