JUPITER, Fla. — Umpire C.B. Bucknor declined to shake St. Louis Cardinals supervisor Oliver Marmol’s hand earlier than an exhibition recreation right here Saturday, in accordance with Marmol, and Main League Baseball is wanting into that change.

Marmol was upset by Bucknor’s response.

“I do not suppose he is good at his job, and it simply exhibits a scarcity of sophistication as a person,” Marmol mentioned after the sport.

Based on an MLB spokesperson, “We’re conscious of Mr. Marmol’s feedback, and the matter is beneath overview.”

Bucknor and Marmol had a confrontation throughout an August 2022 recreation after a disputed strike name to Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado. Bucknor ejected Marmol, who emerged to argue — and because the two yelled at one another, Marmol appeared to inform Bucknor that his time within the sport was accomplished, and Bucknor yelled again that Marmol, comparatively new to his place as St. Louis supervisor, had simply gotten to the massive leagues.

On Saturday, Marmol went to dwelling plate for the change of lineup playing cards, and in accordance with Marmol, Bucknor wouldn’t shake his hand. The opposite umpires — Ron Kulpa, Angel Hernandez and Carlos Torres — did shake Marmol’s hand. Based on Marmol, others apologized for Bucknor’s refusal.
