Minor League Manager Protests His Ejection By Taking Off His Shoes And Chucking Helmet Into Crowd

Ah, another week, another minor league baseball manager taking off his clothes to protest his ejection. Following Joe Mikulik’s strip show at home plate last week, Tommy Thompson – manager of the Winston-Salem Dash, Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox – had a meltdown of his own on Monday night.

After getting ejected by the home plate umpire, Thompson removed his shoes and placed them neatly on home plate before exploding into a fit of rage and getting right in the umpire’s grill. After he was done screaming, Thompson proceeded to heave a stray batting helmet into the crowd and, to his credit, it was quite the impressive toss.
