Little League Player’s Reaction To Awful Strike Call Is Going Viral

Little League World Series player can&#39;t believe an awful strike call.

Little League World Series player can’t believe an awful strike call.

We’ve seen plenty of terrible calls from umpires over the past few years. Unfortunately for Landry Pate of the Wylie Little League All-Stars, who are representing Texas in this year’s Little League World Series, he was on the wrong end of an awful call on Tuesday night.

During the top of the third inning, Pate took a pitch that was way outside. Everyone watching at the stadium thought it would be a ball since it was off the plate. The umpire, however, thought it clipped the outside corner and called it a strike.

Pate couldn’t believe the call from the home plate umpire, as he just stood there in disbelief. He even looked around to see if anyone else disagreed with the call.

The broadcast crew for ESPN couldn’t believe that pitch was ruled a strike. However, they

Sacramento Kings rookie point guard Davion Mitchell powered his Baylor Bears to an NCAA Championship this past spring with his electric speed and his tenacity on defense. His first professional season hasn’t even officially gotten underway and it’s abundantly clear that he’ll be bringing those traits to the NBA.

Mitchell showed off his plethora of skills on Monday night in Las Vegas as his Kings took on the Charlotte Hornets in Summer League. The 22-year-old got the start for Sacramento at point guard and he didn’t disappoint.

The Kings No. 9 overall pick scored just 10 points but dished out nine assists without a single turnover. He posted a +16 in just 28 minutes and led his team to a comfortable 80-70 win.

However, it was Mitchell’s defense that stole the show on Monday night. On multiple occasions, he

LeBron James slams league as injuries pile up in playoffs

As more and more injuries pile up throughout the playoffs — the latest coming in the form of a feared ACL injury for Kawhi Leonard — LeBron James sounded off on the league’s condensed schedule this season on Twitter on Wednesday.

James said that the increase in injuries players are facing aren’t just “part of the game,” but rather due to lack of rest.

As for the financial side of the argument, something that was significantly hurt last season when the NBA had to move into a bubble, James isn’t having it.

The 2020-21 season kicked off on December 22, just 72 days after the Los Angeles Lakers won last season’s NBA Finals at Walt Disney World. That officially made it the shortest offseason in league history, beating the previous record by a whopping 55 days.

It also was the shortest offseason among the four major men’s professional sports leagues
