MLB News: One of Baseball’s Worst Umpires Finally Officially Retired

On Friday, the baseball world let out a collective sigh of relief when long-time MLB umpire Joe West officially announced his retirement. Country Joe spent the better part of 45 years in uniform and became a legend in the game for all the wrong reasons.

Right on cue with the news, MLB social media accounts went into a frenzy sharing all of the best Joe West blown calls, nightmare moments and everything in between.

Here’s a gem featuring Dodgers star Raul Mondesi in the 90s.

The timing of his retirement is certainly suspect, to say the least with the news that robot umpires could be just one step away from MLB this coming season.

Everyone’s favorite Scott Boras puppet, Jon Heyman, got in the mix too by putting a hold on Country Joe’s Hall of Fame enshrinement.

Thanks for the laughs, memories, and headaches, Joe! There will (hopefully) never be another one like you!
