Dogs (Great name for an Independent League baseball team) manager Butch Hobson (Great name for an Independent League baseball manager) was so unhappy with a check-swing strike called on one of his players that he grabbed a bat and demonstrated a check-swing for the umpire. But the theatrics didn't stop there.

Ol Butch then took a mighty cut and pretended to launch a home run. He then made a full home run trot — emphasis on trot — and even high-fived his third-base coach and celebrated with his team after crossing home plate. Check it out:

Way to go, Butch. You are undoubtedly the most beloved manager in Chicago Dogs history.
