Watch Madison Bumgarner Have a 17-Second Stare Down With Umpire Joe West
Apparently MLB umpire Joe West thinks people go to a baseball game to see him. In the above vide he got into a :17 stare down with San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner.
It went down like this: On Thursday, during a the game between the Giants and the San Diego Padres, Bumgarner seemed upset with a call, so West took off his mask and began to stare down Bumgarner. And as you'd expect, Bumgarner wasn't intimidated, and stared right back in West’s direction. What resulted was an epic battle between the two men.
This is not the first time that Joe West has made headlines because of his actions. Back in 1994, he called a strike on Raul Mondesi before Mondesi had even arrived to home plate.
