What works for Christian Bale also works for Brooklyn Cyclones manager Wally Backman. He doesn’t have time for niceties when dealing with incompetents like minor league umpires. Check this freak out from his time managing the South Georgia Peanuts. NSFW language plus bonus equipment tossing.
Getting tossed from a game is nothing after DUI’s and bankruptcies. What’s an umpire going to do to Wally that he hasn’t seen before? Release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark they shoot bees at you?
If Wally was on the set, he definitely would have trashed Shane’s lights. (NSFW language) He doesn’t make threats. He carries them out. Collateral damage be damned.
