Is there an award for best umpire ever? Because if so, this guy wins hands down.
We’re used to umps yelling out the traditional STEEEEE-RIKE, but this guy, who works for an amateur baseball league, has gone viral thanks to his references to 2 Chainz and “Gangnam Style.”
“Eddie the Ump” isn’t just hilarious, he also got a rave review from one of the players.
“He calls games like that all the time and is generally a fun guy to be around,” Jeff Bendix told NJ.com. “He is one of the reasons the league is a great way to spend Sunday afternoons trying to stay young. He also umpires high school and youth games, but would not bring the act on the road to those games as it may cross a line in those circumstances. But with us, it’s enjoyable and brings something new to the game.”
