The error allowed Jones to head for second, but as he made the turn, he accidentally stepped on the foot of first base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt, who was backpedaling out of the basepath but just wasn't fast enough. The trip caused Wendelstedt to lose his balance and fall backwards, and he hit his head on the dirt pretty hard, but fortunately he appeared to be OK afterwards. Video via MLB.

Orioles Prospect Quintin Berry Runs Bases And Slides Into Home After Getting Ejected

We’ve seen baseball players and coaches do some pretty wildly immature things to protest an ejection – most commonly kicking dirt, spitting, and throwing hats, bats and bases – but I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed what Quintin Berry did last night. The Norfolk Tides (Triple-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles) outfielder got into an exchange with the first base umpire...

Quintin Berry Runs Bases, Slides Into Home After Being Ejected (Video)

Baltimore Orioles minor league outfielder Quintin Berry made a memorable, albeit ultimately confusing, exit following his ejection Thursday night. The former Red Sox speedster is now with the Norfolk Tides, the Triple-A affiliate of the O’s, and he’s still motoring around the bases — just not at the right times. After Berry collected his first hit of the night in the ninth...

Watch: Quintin Berry Runs the Bases After Being Ejected from Triple-A Game

Most players have to earn their way to home plate—but don’t tell that to former Tigers OF Quintin Berry. During the ninth inning of Thursday’s Norfolk Tides-Syracuse Chiefs game, Berry cranked out a base hit that trickled into the outfield. He represented the tying run at first base, and gave the team some hope. But for some reason, he began arguing with the first base umpire...

Adam Jones Sends Umpire Tumbling While Rounding First Base (GIF)

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig proved there’s no safe place for an umpire over the weekend when he nearly took out the home plate ump with a bat flip.

The Baltimore Orioles outfielder sent first base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt tumbling to the ground in the fifth inning while trying to advance from first...

Norris continues Orioles' strong run of pitching, Davis homers in 3-2 win over Blue Jays

There’s no secret formula, no sudden epiphany. If the Orioles are going to compete in the American League East all year, they need to get consistent, quality starting pitching.

Video: Ex-Tiger Quintin Berry Ejected … So He Runs the Bases, Slides Into Home

Former Detroit Tigers outfielder Quintin Berry responded to an ejection in perhaps the most bizarre way you’ll ever see, during a game between the Norfolk Tides and Syracuse Chiefs on Thursday night.
