Umpire gets physical

I am new to posting at this site, but have been reading for a while. I have had the opprotunity to spend time with Tony when he was in the Texas League and he did a lot to help improve my umpiring ability and move up in the college ranks. With that said, there has to be more than what the media has given us. You do not make it to the bigs as an ump with a short fuse or a chip on your shoulder, especially since the changes happened in 1999. Mr. Hurdle was a gentleman when he played in KC and he continues to be one in this situation. I am sure that there will be conversations between Tony and Hurdle sometime soon, maybe with or without MLB. Either way, both will take the field again understanding that it is a new day and a new game. Last thing, props to TBH for mentioning big #7, and to the MLB umps for wearing the black armbands in memory. RIP and God Bless Eric Gregg.
