Much Props: Umpire Bob Davidson

It’s normal for fans to yell and curse at the umpire but last night was a perfect example that there is a man behind those masks and he can only take so much as a human being.
Bob Davidson stood up for all umpires that have taken scrutiny from the fans when he ejected fan Sean Otto out of the stands.
Davidson went nearly 7 innings with Otto’s trash talk behind the backstop until he finally had enough and booted the 44-year old man.
Otto was apparently yelling at St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina before Davidson stepped in.
Brewer fans should be ashamed to claim Otto as one of their own after giving him a standing ovation on his way out of the stadium.
Davidson did the right thing by finally taking the initiative and letting fans know that they too can be tossed.
