An umpire appeared to have crossed the line during an Athletic American Conference baseball matchup between Central Florida and Wichita State on Friday night.
Knights infielder Andrew Brait was at bat and took a pitch from righty Nate Snead. Brait didn’t offer at it as it appeared to be outside and a little high. However, the home plate umpire punched him out for a called third strike.

Brait appeared to be upset with home plate umpire Jimmy Paylor after he was rung up. The broadcast appeared to catch Paylor yelling at Brait, “F— you!”
The Central Florida bench appeared to have some words for Paylor after the interaction.
