We give defensive baseball players a hard time when they screw up so royally that a routine grounder or outfield hit turns into a “Little League” home run.
We get on social media and rip coaches when they make decisions that don’t pan out.
Lets not forget Buck Showalter left his best pitcher out of the game in the playoffs #bumshowalter

And then, of course, there’s everyone’s favorite target from fan to player to coach: the umpire.
Like everyone else on the diamond, umps are generally giving it their best, but horrific called third strikes like these often make us wonder if “Blue” is going blind or has money on the game.
