VIDEO: Kyle Schwarber Charges Umpire After Being Called Out on Check-Swing to End Cubs Game.
​​Kyle Schwarber, there's a likely suspension coming your way. After the ​Cubs slugger was called out on a check-swing to end another Chicago defeat, he charged third-base umpire Gabe Morales and was promptly thrown out...after the game was already over. Surely there's room for reasonable discourse between umpires and players over a call or two, but this level of pure madness is never okay, as Morales was fearful Schwarber would resort to violence given his rash reaction. Was the call questionable? Absolutely.
