Nothing is better in baseball than when a player or a manager goes freaking ballistic on an umpire. We have put together a list of 5 of the most epic baseball ejections, with video, but of course.

#3: Minor League Braves Manager Phil Wellman Goes Nuts

#1 Tigers manager Jim Leyland ejected
Tigers manager Jim Leyland got the fireworks started early, uncorking one the best rants of his long career as a prelude to another eighth-inning uprising by the Tigers, who beat the Blue Jays, 4-2, and stayed atop the American League Central, one game ahead of the Indians.
“That was impressive,” Don Kelly said.
Said starting pitcher Max Scherzer, “We all had a nice little chuckle in the clubhouse — good ole Skip, giving his best to the umpires. But he had to do what he had to do.”
