Bob Davidson is my new favourite umpire.
The home plate ump stopped Tuesday night’s Phillies game in the middle of an at-bat to eject a heckling fan seated behind the visiting dugout. The Giants were a bit nervous as Davidson walked towards their dugout, but it turned out he was kicking a fan out for shouting sexual innuendos and insults. It’s not the first time he’s done this- in 2010 he kicked a fan out for yelling homophobic slurs at a visiting player.
Davidson says people were cheering him on for the move- which he says is unusual for him in Philly.
