In a Southern League baseball game between the Mississippi Braves and Chatanooga Lookouts, in the bottom of the 2nd inning Braves manager Phillip Wellman argues a ball/strike call and is ejected from the game by home plate umpire Brent Rice.

Wellman loses control and proceeds to cover homeplate with dirt, throw the third base bag and crawl behind the mound and throw the resin bag like a hand grenade.

He then storms around the field and departs the field thru the right field fence after acknowledging the cheers of the crowd.
