Video: Marlins Shortstop Silences Umpire with Epic Home Run


Second-year shortstop Jazz Chisholm Jr. captured the hearts of Miami Marlins fans last night as he crushed one of the most satisfying home runs you'll see all season. 

The Marlins were up 3-0 on the St. Louis Cardinals in the bottom of the seventh inning with one out and a man on third when Chisholm stepped up to the plate. He went down 0-2 in the count after watching a couple pitches he thought were balls. He made his disapproval of the calls obvious to umpire Phil Cuzzi as he shook his head and took longer than usual to step back into the box. The umpire looked at Jazz, pointed at the box, clapped his hands, and shouted "Let's go!" loud enough for the broadcast to pick it up.

Even Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina became impatient and signalled for Aaron Brooks to quick pitch Chisholm. Brooks didn't catch on and Yadiar called time to reset the pitch decision. Brooks looked distressed. He wiped his face and grabbed the rosin bag with visible jitters. Yadiar called for the pitch way inside. Brooks hung a lazy slider over the plate. Chisholm made him pay. 

What's more, Chisholm didn't just round the bases. He pointed to the outfield twice (at first base and just after second) and Euro stepped his way across home plate. The Euro step is his signature home run celebration, but Phil Cuzzi clearly wasn't a fan judging from the look he gave Chisholm. 

Regardless, this is one of the best revenge homers you'll see all year.
