Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is hosting a charity softball game in July, and he has found just the right umpire.
Sherman wrote on the Facebook page for the Richard Sherman Celebrity Softball Game that the umpire will be Lance Easley, one of the replacement refs who handed the Seahawks a win over the Packers last season by ruling that Seattle had scored a Hail Mary touchdown as time expired.
“Remember the Ref who called TD during the Green Bay Game Monday Night??? His name is Lance Easley and he is going to Umpire for us July 7th! Don’t be surprised if a few flags are thrown,” Sherman wrote.
Umpires don’t throw flags in softball, but maybe Easley doesn’t know that.
