Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson wasn't in the mood for any bullshit from a self-important umpire on Thursday afternoon in Chicago. After a ridiculous strike call during his at-bat, Donaldson smoked a home run and then kicked dirt on home plate as he crossed it.

What a move. Has anyone ever been ejected from an MLB game while hitting a home run?
I don't know and if they did it probably wasn't as funny as Donaldson's ejection. Here's a look at the ridiculous strike call that got his blood boiling.

Don't get me wrong this is a great moment, but Josh Donaldson's still an asshole.
