VIDEO: Wally Backman Kicks Dirt On Umpire After Getting Ejected From Binghamton Mets Game

Former New York Mets World Series champion Wally Backman has become a YouTube legend for his ejections while managing the South Georgia Peanuts. Now a days Backman is the manager of the Double-A Binghamton Mets where it appears he still has a hearty temper. This video is from the July 10th B-Mets vs New Britain Rock Cats game. Immediately prior, Binghamton designated hitter had been ejected for arguing a called third strike. Backman comes out to protect his player and gets run too, and after picking up the hat that threw, Backman kicks dirt at the umpire like a pro.
