An umpire has emptied the stands at a high school baseball game, ejecting the entire crowd of more than 100 fans for being unruly. Umpire Don Briggs said he had no problem with any of the student athletes during Thursday's game between Winfield-Mount Union and West Burlington. He said he had to take action because fans were being unruly, yelling and arguing, and called police as a precaution. West Burlington police officer Al Waterman said there were no arrests, and saw no unruliness himself. West Burlington superintendent James Sleister said he didn't see any unusual behavior either, and said he thought the umpire overreacted. The game resumed after a 40-minute delay. West Burlington won 12-11.
