Umpire Released From Hospital, Pressing Charges After Being Attacked By Baseball Coach (VIDEO)

An umpire from Texas says he is going to press charges against a boy’s baseball coach after he was attacked during a game over the weekend.

Sam Phelps, who has been an umpire for the past 15 years, says he’s still recovering from the shock on Saturday when he says he was assaulted while on the job.

“As the game went on, he didn’t like what happened. I didn’t know what was coming,” he said.

Phelps says seconds after he called a runner safe at home, the coach came out of the dugout irate.

“I ejected him, and I held up my hand and said, ‘We aren’t doing this, coach,’” he said. “And then he held up his hand to mock me saying, ‘Oh, we aren’t doing this.’ And then he shoved me right in the face, and I fell backwards and hit my head. And I was down for a while.”

Ryan Walke watched the entire thing go down.

“He was on the ground for 10 to 15 minutes,” he recalled. “The ambulance came out there. Put him on a stretcher. Scary times.”

Phelps was scanned for a concussion and released from the hospital.

The coach could now face an assault charge after admitting he shoved the ump after he questioned a call at home plate.
