Major League Baseball is reportedly investigating umpire Rob Drake after he tweeted a threatening message on Tuesday. 

Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reported the news, noting Drake posted a tweet (later deleted) that said he was planning on purchasing an assault rifle…..

“…….because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020”

MLB Umpire (for now)

I hope that Umpire Drake calls balls and strikes better that he can spell!

There is a picture of President Trump in front of an American flag as Drake’s current Twitter banner picture as of Wednesday evening. He also has a number of political retweets on his profile that lash out at the House of Representatives’ current impeachment proceedings against the president.

A spokesperson for the league told Passan there is an investigation underway.

Drake has been a full-time MLB umpire since 2010 and worked the 2013 All-Star Game, as well as playoff games in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
