Together, Luke Hamilton and Brian Hertzog refer to themselves as the "Luke Brian Tour." Their names coupled with the fact that they "tour" the world doing various baseball umpiring gigs results in their nickname.
I won't ask you, but, instead, I will admit that I have yelled far too many times at umpires convinced that they missed a call either on purpose or out of lack of ability and thousands more times silently in my head. I'm sure you all have experienced this as well. You may have wanted to immediately take back what you said. Maybe you hoped they didn't hear you. Maybe you even went to apologize to them later. The thing is though, you are not the first nor will you be the last to yell at these men and women trying to honestly do their jobs. Why do we yell? I bet if it was all computerized we wouldn't yell right? How does it feel to be the umpire being yelled at? What about when, as an umpire, you are yelled at and you were actually wrong, then what? All these questions and more including discussions on a general view of baseball around the world witnessed from a new perspective (the eyes of an umpire) on this episode of The Globally Ballin Podcast; don't miss it.
