In fact, the event is one of the most enjoyable sporting tournaments of the year and it's really hard to find anything major to complain about it.Well, unless your former Major League Baseball slugger Jose Canseco.Apparently, Canseco just couldn't hold his tongue while tuning in to some LLWS action. And the controversial figure took to Twitter Saturday afternoon to voice his discontent with the umpires.Here are some of his tweets...Wow umpires in the Little League World Series are terrible.calling pitches way out of the zone strikes.even allowing catchers way out of zon— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Terrible umpires— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Calling strikes on pitches 10 inches outside— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Umpires calling horrible game balls being called strikes all game long pic.twitter.com/mys5YpGij3— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Little league world series .terrible umpires— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013This umpire has been consistently calling strike 3 on the Texas team 1 foot outside.little league world series . pic.twitter.com/RfDe2BagY1— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Wow just called this a strike against the Texas team .that makes the plate 4 feet wide.what a shame llws pic.twitter.com/QEJY1HDnWJ— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013The umpire is racist or being paid off.umpire is only calling bad pitches against Texas.little league world series.— Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 17, 2013Okay, I think you get the point.Canseco is not a fan of the umpires.
