While You Were Sleeping: Umpire Files Suit Against MLB For Racial Discrimination


Since 2000, every MLB umpire promoted to crew chief has been white.

Now, Cuban-born umpire Angel Hernandez is suing Major League Baseball for racial discrimination, according to ESPN and media reports. The suit also alleges Joe Torre has held a grudge against Hernandez since 2001, and that grudge has affected Hernandez’s annual evaluations.
