MLB Umpire Joe West Requested To Be Given Flowers By The San Diego Chicken After Breaking Games Umpired Record

Joe West San Diego Chicken

In a weird but fun story, MLB umpire Joe West broke the MLB umpired games record. But that’s not why this story is bizarre. The reason this story is bizarre is what Joe West requested as a special treat for breaking the record. He wanted the San Diego Chicken to give him a bouquet of flowers for the special moment. And the game itself? Well it wasn’t played in San Diego; it was played in Chicago between the Cardinals versus the White Sox.

The San Diego chicken actually had to come out of retirement for this special occasion. And Joe West was met with a scattering of boos (of course he’s an umpire).
