Stubby Clapp is the manager for the Tri-City Valleycats, the Single-A affiliate of the Houston Astros. Stubby is a little on the smaller side, coming in at 5-foot-8 and 175-pounds, and a Canadian to boot, but that doesn’t mean he’s not capable of a channeling the ghost of Earl Weaver for an all-out, helmet throwing, dirt kicking, bat tossing tirade against the umpires.
Wait…Earl Weaver’s not dead? Well slap my face with a Mississippi pickle.
Clapp was none too pleased with the non-call by the home plate umpire after it looked like one of his players was hit by a pitch. Apparently this was enough to set the little spark plug off, and what followed was a phenomenal managerial meltdown that would make Weaver proud. The helmet toss was great, but covering the plate in dirt makes no sense to me, considering the umps are armed with those cute little brooms. Tossing the bats on the field is always fun, and the perfect way to punctuate a tantrum like this one.
Video follows the jump…
Wow that Stubby Clapp is one angry individual. Then again, I’d be angry too if I was a wee little Canadian man named Stubby.
