MiLB catcher and manager get ejected, shed gear and clothing in protest (VIDEO)

In the top of the ninth inning of Saturday's game against the Biloxi Shuckers (Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers), Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds) manager Pat Kelly and catcher Kyle Skipworth protested umpire Alex Ziegler's call following a foul ball before getting ejected.

Not happy to let the home-plate ump have the last word, both the skipper and backstop started shedding some of their gear and clothing before hitting the locker room. 

It's not clear why Skipworth was tossed, but this might be one of the few times you will see a catcher do a striptease along with his manager.

And while all of that would have been enough to make his point, Kelly wasn't done. He continued to scream at the umpires and eventually used the rosin bag as deodorant.

Kelly left to a standing ovation from the sellout crowd.
