Umpires are firing back after what they consider a far-too-lenient punishment for Tigers second baseman, following his verbal assault on Angel Hernandez this week.
Joe West, the longest-tenured umpire in Major League Baseball, is the president of the World Umpires Association. "The verbal attack on Angel Hernandez denigrated the entire Major League Baseball umpiring staff and is unacceptable".
This past Monday, Kinsler was ejected during the fifth inning of the Tigers game against the Texas Rangers after he had seen enough of Angel Hernandez's inconsistent strike zone. There's often arguments between team players and umpires, managers and umpires, and coaches and umpires, that's part of the game. The player denigrated Hernandez publicly said he thought he would be suspended. The Umpires Association also assailed the league's decision to fine Kinsler as "lenient treatment", which lit the fuse for manager Brad Ausmus. "He shrugged this off and told reporters he has "no regrets" about his offensive statements calling for an end to Hernandez's career".
"This is in support of major league umpires", crew chief Bill Miller said after the Dodgers beat the Tigers 3-0.
In addition to the statement, some umps wore white wristbands during games "to protest escalating verbal attacks on umpires and their strong objection to the Office of the Commissioner's response to the verbal attacks".
Ausmus was asked about the World Umpires Association's statement following Saturday's game, and considered it "completely wrong to single out one player". We are held accountable for our performance at every game. "Our most important duty is to protect the integrity of the game, and we will continue to do that job every day", the umpires union said in a statement on Saturday. Here's the message: Stop giving us a hard time, we're doing our jobs. The release says umpires will wear the bands until their concerns are addressed by Commissioner Rob Manfred.
Ausmus added that he felt it was ironic that the umpires were wearing white armbands when players aren't allowed to wear those.
