Umpire boo’d for ignoring Finn the Bat dog

Umpires heard boos from the crowd last night - not because of a bad call.

But because the Umpire tossed a bat away from staff bat dog named Finn. He retrieves bats in between at-bats.

Finn works for the Oakland Athletics’ Triple-A affiliate, the Las Vegas Aviators. During Tuesday night’s game, the Umpire clearly saw Finn running to get the bat but he picked it up instead and tossed the bat towards the on-deck circle.

The crowds was not happy and let the ump know, booing loudly.
