Ump Jordan Baker Executes MMA Takedown On Matt Kemp

Umpire and weirdo Jordan Baker defused a brewing Padres-Braves brawl with his best attempt at a double underhook throw on San Diego’s Matt Kemp, who was attempting to go after Julio Teheran following a hit by pitch in the first inning today in Atlanta.
