Imagine if this happened in MLB. Texas Rangers backup catcher Yorvit Torrealba has been suspended 66 games Venezuelan League for striking the homeplate umpire after striking out swinging. The total game count means he will miss the rest of this season, and all of next season in the Venezuelan League. The suspension does not carry over to MLB. He shoved the umpire in the mask, forceably driving him backward.Torrealba is currently playing for Leones del Caracas in the Winter Ball league
