Manic Memorial Day #2--Kill The Umpire!!

It's Memorial Day, and it's a great day for watching baseball!!

Great except for that guy. Man, I hate the umpire!! And I'm not alone:

You tell 'im, unruly crowd!!

But something will happen at THIS game that I'm pretty sure you've never seen at a baseball game before...



Fortunately, ace crime reporter/occasional costumed hero Chic Carter is on the scene!!

But why?? Who would do such a thing?

So he followed the umpire around, waiting until a ball was him near him in the stands? Well, that's dedication.

I guess this is as good an excuse as any to implement instant replay in baseball. Or robot umpires!!

From National Comics #37 (1943)
