Did not make a mistake",deliberately made the wrong call to send a message to an excitable rookie. Now the kid will be suspended and the rest of the umpire fraternity will reinforce this message to the kid when he gets back by continuing to punish him by deliberately making more bad calls? What a disgrace.
