Former Major League Baseball pitcher Mitch Williams was ejected from a kids' baseball game after getting into a heated argument with an umpire.

Williams, the man who surrendered the home run that ended the 1993 World Series coaches his son's 10-and-under team, which was competing in a tournament in Aberdeen, Maryland.

Citing observers, Deadspin reported that the situation escalated when Williams, who was coaching first base, shouted to a parent about getting the umpire fired. That sparked a face-to-face argument on the field in front of the players and parents.

Williams was reportedly restrained by other coaches, then refused to leave the field for 10 minutes.

"He went nuts," a source told Deadspin. "He got into the umpire's face like it was the major leagues."

Williams took to Twitter to explain and apologize.







Now an MLB Network analyst, the 49-year-old Williams spent 11 seasons with six big-league teams. He's best known for the home run he allowed to Joe Carter that lifted the Blue Jays to a six-game World Series triumph.
