Vine: Anthony Recker Gets Ejected By Angel Hernandez, Breaks Bat Over His Knee
- Updated: June 12, 2014
With the bases loaded with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning, Mets catcher Anthony Recker had a chance to be a hero.
Umpire Angel Hernandez decided that on a 2-2 pitch, a pitch that looked low was strike three and Recker was not too pleased about it.
Here is your visual evidence of another happy player with one of the more famous umpires in baseball…
And now this from RECKER https://t.co/cTxlD01Qup

Recker was ejected from the game and the Mets lost the final position player on their bench as Taylor Teagarden replaced him behind the plate.
How many players has Hernandez upset like this over his long career? We are sure the number is in the thousands at this point.
UPDATE: Some people have done some editing to Angel Hernandez’s Wikipedia page
