Hunter Wendelstedt is more professional than Bryce Harper

What do you notice about the above picture? Hunter Wendelstedt is showing restraint and professionalism. Umpires are supposed to be adults and professionals. Hunter Wendelstedt last night handled Bryce Harper’s meltdown like an umpire should: don’t inflame the situation and get back to calling the game.

Look, I’m not happy Bryce Harper was thrown out of the game. I’m not even saying Wendelstedt made a good call. But he didn’t instigate a fight like John Hirschbeck infamously did in Pittsburgh earlier this season.

I don’t expect perfection from umpires. I do expect professionalism. Wendelstedt passed the test.
