Every Umpire Should Be Mic'd Up

ESPN is putting mics on home-plate umpires during the 2012 College World Series, which is a pretty superb idea. Ever wonder what kind of banter happens between umps and players? Or what umps are yelling about? You'll love this.

Pretty great, especially towards the end, when the ump asks, "What's up with all the Burt Reynolds mustaches?" Florida State players are rocking some pretty sweet 'staches, and the umpire needed answers.
