Jose Offerman PUNCHES UMPIRE: Punch Caught On VIDEO

Jose Offerman punched an umpire in the Dominican Republic today, a maneuver that may cap his 15-year Major League Baseball career. Offerman, who played for the Dodgers and Red Sox (as well as five other MLB teams) let his anger get the best of him during a squabble with an umpire. According to the AP, Offerman struck first base umpire Daniel Rayburn and was taken to a police station following the incident. Scroll down to see video of the punchy moment.
