It looks like Kyle Schwarber almost blew a gasket for absolutely no reason.
Schwarber lost his mind after being called out on a check swing to end the Chicago Cubs-Los Angeles Angels game on Saturday, and a couple of photos emerged proving that he did indeed swing and the third base umpire made the right call.
How about another angle?
In baseball, that's what we call a swing.
He was so distraught with the call that he threw his helmet and bat and tried to rush the umpire as teammate Javier Baez held him back.

We get that it was close, but Schwarber's overreaction was absolutely off the rails. It's only April and at a glance it was a borderline call. How can you not expect this call to go either way given the late-game circumstances?
He finished the day with zero hits and two strikeouts, so maybe this was just the straw that broke the camel's back.
