Wow, that Walker guy's a real jerk.

First he fakes being hit, THEN he points the bat at the umpire like that.

And I think this may be the first time I have ever posted in the Sports tab.

Wow, AW'd in one.

I do not envy the batter once the manager gets him into his office.

How old is that video? He hasn't been on that team in years....

\waiting for the inevitable time when someone posts a Fark link to this five years ago

Well, technically he's on the team now...as an assistant coach.

You google-fu is strong. I was 5 years ago. but it's a college game between Arkansas and Ole Miss. He went on to fail at minor league ball and get on the Arkansas coaching staff.

And after watching that, I'd like to punch the fark out of his mean cracker face.

Did he think he was playing hockey? There's no penalty box on baseball

Ah - you found an earlier reference than I did. Actually, it may have been even earlier than that for all I know.

He's still a cracker biatch, though. Too bad peckerwoods take up baseball and not soccer.

The YouTube vid was posted in May of 2006. Apparently, he tried it again the next year.

Oh wow! Really? Arkansas baseball players are now coached to act like that? Arkansas baseball, its baseball built for the soccer crowd.
 
2012-07-14 12:33:16 PM
i love that. acts like his elbow is completely ruined, then after he's thrown out, proceeds to demonstrate how well his elbow is by throwing his helmet and shiat with his injured arm
 
2012-07-14 12:37:47 PM
There's no crying in baseball.

If soccer handled flopping in this manner, it would be a much better sport.

If soccer handled flopping in this manner added three goals, electrified the playing surface and reduced the length of the field to 50 feet, it would be a much better sport.

he didn't get ejected for the horrible acting job, he was ejected for pointing the bat at the ump after he struck out

Must be A soccer player as well.
 
2012-07-14 01:08:14 PM
What a punk-ass biatch.
 
2012-07-14 01:17:16 PM
A good friend of mine used to say, "This is a very simple game. You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains." Think about that for a while.
 
2012-07-14 01:19:22 PM
SEC! If you're not cheating, you're not trying!

Actually have a hard time believing this video got green-lighted. It is very old.

He just got no respect.

Brian Walker is a disgrace to the game.

As much as I wish umps handled flopping this way, it looks like the ump was reacting to the batter's gesture after he struck out, not his crappy acting job on the previous pitch.
 
2012-07-14 01:53:27 PM
Golly gee, I wonder if he was a bully in high school.
 
2012-07-14 01:54:26 PM
Don't really understand why a player would do this. HBP doesn't do anything for your stats, and ultimately the numbers are how you are judged. Well, and being a whiny pussy doesn't help either.
 
2012-07-14 02:01:41 PM
He wasn't doing steroids back then. Nope, no way.

Washed out after 4 years in the minors.

It gets you on first base and out of what will likely be a messy looking strikeout for you.
 
2012-07-14 02:31:11 PM
He should have been ejected on the next pitch no matter what. If he had been hit to the point where he acted the way he did, there's no way he gets a cut at the next pitch like that. He gave the fake away immediately, and for that he deserved to get tossed. The bat pointing was just the icing on the cake.

OBP and OPS are directly impacted and I am sure there are more advanced stats that it will figure into. Plus, getting on base is always good if you want to win the game. I never complained whenever I got hit. It is a successful plate appearance with no risk or effort required. I would get royally pissed when the umpire refused to give me first base for whatever reason.

He was a college baseball player. What more would you expect?

balki1867: As much as I wish umps handled flopping this way, it looks like the ump was reacting to the batter's gesture after he struck out, not his crappy acting job on the previous pitch.


Of course the ump was probably hoping for a reason to toss him at that point. Especially after his swing made it 100% certain he was acting and never hurt his arm (it was possible he actually hurt it aggravating whatever he had it wrapped for).

Very Al Czervik of you :)

Also, I'm sure that Walker is a stud on his slo-pitch softball team.

They get away with playing a little soccer, from time to time, in between operatic displays of agony and head band adjustments.

According to this story the incident took place back in 2006. The particular video linked from Youtube by subby was posted to Youtube in April of 2011. Martin earned a solid reputation as a douche because of this incident. However, his raging doucheosity didn't prevent him from playing minor league baseball.

$5 says he typed exactly what is in that post.

This should be his minor league record:

Link

He had 6 games in AAA in the Angels' system.

Here is the announcement of his retirement after a long and storied career: Link

His stats aren't that bad, particularly for a catcher. I wonder why he really retired.

I heart the googles. His wife is the first person listed on the staff of this cheer and dance academy: Link

Congratulations, Brian Walker. Wherever you are.

FIFY

/ a "manager" in college baseball is a student who is in charge of things like making sure uniforms are washed.
// the guy who runs the team is the "coach", just like it is in football, basketball, hockey, etc.
