Watch this baseball manager throw the mother of all tantrums after getting ejected

No matter how much we're told to respect a referee's decisions, there are times when it's almost impossible to keep a lid on what you really think.

That said, we've not witnessed anything quite like this before.

The name Joe Mikulik might not mean all that much to us on these shores, but in the US, he's got a bit of a reputation for outbursts such as this one.

Mikulik, manager of the fantastically named Minor League Baseball team, the Frisco Roughriders, had been ejected during Tuesday night's match with the Tulsa Drillers.

As you'll witness from the video below, Mikulik didn't take too kindly to the decision and set about letting the umpires know precisely how he felt about the decision - first yelling in the officials' faces, then physically removingĀ and drop kicking second base.

As much as we wouldn't recommend anyone taking out their grievances with a referee in such a way, we can't deny that this is all highly amusing.

What with this and the mass brawl that took place in the MLB game between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays the other week, perhaps it's time for us to start paying a bit more attention to baseball?
