Umpire Ejects Daytona Cubs Music Intern Derek Dye for Playing “Three Blind Mice” (Video)

| by Alex Groberman

Following a particularly bad call during Wednesday night’s minor league game at Jackie Robinson Ballpark, music intern Derek Dye decided to play a tune that he thought was applicable to the situation: Three Blind Mice.

No big deal, right? In theory, no.

Unless of course the plate umpire working the game thinks it’s a big deal…

That yelling you heard, that was umpire Mario Seneca screaming "Turn the sound off for the rest of the night.”

Via Danny Wild:

After a questionable play at first base, Harper argued the call with infield umpire Ramon Hernandez. Daytona first baseman Taylor Davis appeared to pick a ball in the dirt thrown by shortstop Tim Saunders, but it came out of his glove when he turned to toss it around the infield. Hernandez ruled Davis had bobbled the ball rather than dropping it on the transfer and declared Fort Myers' Andy Leer safe.

The big takeaway from all this? Minor league baseball is the worst thing ever.
