Kid gets ultimate souvenir after angry Bryce tosses helmet into stands

Harper said he hadn’t seen a replay of his check swing. He said he didn’t need to.

“It’s just bad, just all around,” Harper said. “You’re grinding in that at-bat, facing a guy I’ve never faced before. I got to a 3-2 count, I took a slider down and in, obviously didn’t go. Wasn’t even thinking about [strike three] in that situation. I was taking my stuff off and I heard the crowd’s reaction, and I was just like, ‘There’s no way.’”

Asked what Hernández told him when he went out to third base, Harper said, “He just told me that if I saw the replay, that I would know that I was wrong. I mean, yeah, so.”

Angel Hernandez’s Lawsuit Accusing MLB of Racial Discrimination Rejected in Federal Appeals Court

Ángel Hernández’s lawsuit accusing Major League Baseball of racial discrimination was rejected in a federal appeals court in New York on Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Hernández, who was born in Cuba, filed the case in 2017 after serving as an interim crew chief from 2011 to 2016. This came after he was passed over for a promotion to crew chief and not chosen to work the World Series. He filed the appeal in June 2022.


When Hernández lost the case in 2021, the judge said MLB made a compelling case that [former MLB chief baseball officer Joe] Torre had reason to believe Hernandez is simply not a good enough umpire to deserve a promotion.
