Wally Goes Wacko

Here is a cool clip of Wally Backman, former Mets player and current Brooklyn Cyclones manager, going completely unhinged after getting tossed from a game as a manager of the South Georgia Peanuts, an independent team, a few years ago. Wally had a microphone on him, and uses plenty of colorful language (so be warned).

I love when Wally calls the ump "a pipsqueak."

With thanks to John Fitzgerald at the Playing For Peanuts site.

Welcome to Brooklyn, Wally. Opening night for the Cyclones is June 19th, and I'll be on hand.

Enjoy.
