Wally Backman Verbally Assaults An Umpire, Part 79

Former major leaguer Willy Backman knows how to curse in an umpire's face. He's extraordinarily well-versed in the F-bomb. Backman was recently hired as the manager for the AA Binghamton Mets, but a clip from a documentary series about independent minor league baseball called "Playing for Peanuts" just saw internet light for the first time the other day, and we're glad for it. This comes, again, from Backman's stint as manager for the South Georgia Peanuts. Backman told the crew after the game that he "basically motherf—ked the guy" to earn this ejection, so, yeah, the above clip is probably NSFW.
