Former MLB pitcher Mike Montgomery, who was a reliever on the Chicago Cubs’ 2016 World Series team, threw a rosin bag at an umpire after he was tossed from a KBO game on Friday.

Montgomery pitches for the Samsung Lions of the KBO, which is the top baseball league in South Korea.

During a game against the KT Wiz, Montgomery was warned about the KBO’s pitch rule, which states a ball must thrown by the pitcher within 12 seconds of receiving the ball when the bases are empty.

The umpire ejected Montgomery for violation of the rule and he charged the umpire as his teammates tried to restrain him.

He picked up a rosin bag and hit the umpire in the back. After getting to the dugout, Montgomery took off his jersey and threw it out on the field.

Montgomery had a career record 23-34 with a 3.84 ERA with the Seattle Mariners, Cubs and Kansas City Royals. He earned the save in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series against the Cleveland Indians after Michael Martinez grounded to third for the final out.
