Astros star Bregman rants on umpires over controversial call

American professional baseball infielder for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball, Alex Bregman recently lost a triple in the sixth inning .

Bregman apparently could not take the defeat and ended up losing his cool post the game.

He was called out when a video review resulted in a ruling of fan interference, a crucial play in a game that Houston ultimately lost 3-2 to the Colorado Rockies in Denver. The lead-off hitter in the sixth, Bregman hit a ball that almost reached the wall in left field. Rockies left fielder Gerardo Parra was making a leap at the fence when the ball ticked off the glove of a fan — in an Astros jersey — who was reaching over the wall.

When Colorado manager Bud Black requested, the umpires went to a video review, and after the tape was viewed, the call was overturned and Bregman was called out.

The television broadcast then showed Bregman swearing at the umpires, and he threw his helmet but wasn’t ejected. After the game, Bregman issued a foul-mouthed reaction.“It was a … joke, and they should be … ashamed of themselves,” Bregman said.

“Obviously the guy has never played … baseball before in his life.”
