Stubby Clapp Video Star

Former G-Stros hitting coach, Stubby Clapp has been featured in two videos recently. The first are his thoughts on J. D. Martinez being called up to the Houston Astros.

The second is his tirade during the day game today after a ValleyCat player was hit by a pitch and the ump said he didn't get first because he leaned into the pitch. Keep in mind, this outburst occurred with the stands full of kids there for "Camp Day."

Current Greeneville manager Omar Lopez might could take some lessons from Stubby on how to make your point. Lopez was ejected from Saturday night's game and was given a two game suspension for bumping the umpire. It wasn't quite as eventful an ejection as Stubby's.
