Phillies rookie Scott Kingery came really close to eating an umpire’s punch. It occurred when he tagged a runner out at second base on a strike him out, throw him out double play.
Kingery ended up right in front of the second base umpire as the ump was punching the runner out at second. Lucky for Kingery the ump was able to hold up on the punch.
It looks like the umpire throws a solid right hand. That could have ended poorly for all involved.
