Just think how much we like to watch wild arguments in baseball, when a manager flaps his arms, throws his hat and hollers nose-to-nose at the umpire while the spit flies.
Richie Phillips, a tough-talking Philly lawyer who became a negotiator for Major League Baseball umpires and NBA referees, has died. He was 72.
Don Denkinger was watching at home, saw the blown call at first base and winced.
"It's time, especially for the World Series," he said. "You can't get an argument out of me."
"That's a nightmare for an umpire," he said Sunday. "You hate to see that happen to anyone."
