College of Charleston assistant coach Matt Heath has been suspended one game for his epic confrontation with an umpire in last night’s 8-3 loss to second ranked USC. Heath was upset about a non-call on a runners interference play. Heath bumped the umpire and was ejected from the game.
Heath got of easy compared to one of the umpires in the game. Gamecock Radio Network baseball color commentator Tommy Moody is reporting one of the umpires was fired today for failing to report the bumping incident within 12 hours.

**UPDATE: The umpire that was fired for this incident has reportedly been reinstated. ***
