WATCH: Furious Baseball Player Replaces Umpire With Garbage Can in On-Field Meltdown

A minor-league baseball player had a major-league meltdown on Monday night during a confrontation with an umpire.

Brennan Metlzer of the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks got extremely indignant when umpire Mike Jarboe called a third strike on him during an at-bat in his team’s game against the Chicago Dogs. Redhawks manager Michael Schlact had to restrain Meltzer as he went on a profane tirade against Jarboe before getting ejected from the game.

But even after getting tossed, Metzger wasn’t done. He came back onto the field with a trash can from the dugout, put it behind home plate and told Jarboe “go to your home” before storming off.

Somewhere, Lou Piniella is smiling.

Watch above.
