Yorvit Torrealba had quite the lapse in judgement during a Venezuelan winter ball game on Friday. Torrealba seemed upset over the home plate umpire’s calls during his at-bat and when he struck out swinging he took some extra time to get in the umpire’s face. We have all seen that part happen before, but towards the end of the argument, Torrealba shoved the umpire’s face with a great deal of force. The incident occurs around the 35-second mark of the video.

  • MLB should Bring him in and fine him for actions unbecoming of a Major league baseball player and then suspene his tug like butt
  • Bad empires ruin more games than PED's. Most of them deserve to be pushed !!!!!!!

    You should think before you make such a dumb statement.
    Drugs have stained baseball's reputation FAR MORE than any bad official EVER could.
    And, FURTHERMORE, why are you blaming that ump for something he has NO control over?!
    That a**hole's temper!
    He swung and missed didn't he?! Yeah, he did.

    I have been an ump for two decades now, and I have NEVER been subjected to a physical assault like that.
    A lawsuit is probably being considered by that ump.
    I would do it if I were him.
    He got his neck snapped backwards pretty sharply, for no good reason.
    That player deserves the punishment he is going to get from MLB, and probably the police also.
    Stupid rich egomaniac athletes always cause their own problems.
    This is just the latest example.
    I hope it costs him a million $$$, or more.
