Rutgers basketball coach Fred Hill, Jr. is son to baseball coach Fred Hill, Sr., and apparently that gives him the opportunity to be in the dug out on occasion. Against Pitt last weekend, apparently that also "allowed" him to release a tirade of cuss words at Pittsburgh's coach as he attempted to appeal a play.
In a bizarre outburst witnessed by several reporters, Hill made a scene after the Rutgers baseball team beat ranked Pitt 9-8 in a wild finish Thursday.
In the bottom of the ninth, with Rutgers trailing 8-7, runners on second and third and two outs, Mike Lang’s grounder to short was fielded cleanly, but the throw to first was off the mark, allowing the tying and winning runs to score. Pitt coach Joe Jordano protested the call at first base, prompting a huddle by the umpires.
During the huddle, Hill (whose father is RU’s longtime baseball coach) was on the diamond in front of the Rutgers dugout and launched into a profanity-laced tirade in the direction of Jordano and the Pittsburgh coaches.
