Update: Jose Offerman banned for life from Dominican winter league reports that the Dominican Winter Baseball League has suspended Jose Offerman for life after he tried to hit umpire Daniel Rayburn during an argument last week. Due to the incident, Rayburn and three other American umpires working in the Dominican league resigned and left the country, forcing the league to use native umpires in the league's finals that start Monday between Cibao and the Escogido Lions.

  1. It sucks that the umps would leave even though it looks like the Dominican league handled the issue with the suspension. I wonder if there's something else there that led them to believe they weren't being protected or respected.
