Nothing beats a day at the ol’ ballpark… even an empty one.
And for Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who if he isn’t on the mound is usually on the bench with the rest of the team, decided to take in the action from the stands today. Section 121 of Citi Field to be exact. And just like a regular fan… he got into some old fashioned umpire heckling.
After a couple of close pitches from teammate Austin Voth in the bottom of the 3rd, Strasburg let out a “you’re fucking brutal,” which just so happened to catch the ears of home plate umpire Carlos Torres (not exactly a lot of competing noise when you’re the only fan in the stadium).
But just like that Strasburg’s day was done…
Stephen Strasburg was just ejected for arguing balls and strikes … from his seat in Section 121.
