Former MLB pitcher Mike Montgomery was involved in a heated moment with an umpire while playing for his Korean Baseball Organization team on Friday night.

Montgomery, a World Series champion who is now a pitcher for the Samsung Lions, was ejected from the game after taking too long to throw the ball and breaking the league’s 12-second pitch rule. Montgomery was extremely irate and tried to confront the umpire in the middle of his teammates holding him back.
