In addition to being a very successful manager for a very long time, Lou Piniella was known for having some truly excellent in-game eruptions involving umpires. When he joined the Cubs in advance of the 2007 season as their new manager, it was one of the things we were all waiting to see.
It took a couple months! But finally, on June 2 – exactly 15 years ago today – Sweet Lou’s first eruption arrived, and it was worth the wait. Enjoy the memory:
