Dustin Pedroia on Angel Hernandez yelling at Derek Jeter
- Abraham, Boston Globe Extra Bases, Dustin Pedroia on Joe West's comments and Angel Hernandez' treatment of Jeter:
- According to Pedroia, umpire Angel Hernandez shouted at Derek Jeter when the Yankees shortstop asked for time while at the plate on Tuesday night.
“The pitcher gets to throw the ball on his time. There shouldn’t be anybody yelling at you to get in the box,” Pedroia said.
“Derek Jeter is a Hall of Fame baseball player and the umpire is yelling at him.
