Umpire Tim Welke stands up for all that's decent and right, ejects expletive-spewing fan

The world needs more heroes. Fortunately, umpire Tim Welke seems up for the job.

When Bryce Harper stepped to the plate on Tuesday night, one Braves fan decided to try and squeeze all of George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television" into one sentence. 

Welke, standing up for every fan's right to see a ballgame without some nincompoop shouting offensive nonsense, immediately had ushers escort the fan to the exit. 

So be careful, those who wish to infringe on the enjoyment on others. Because Tim Welke is watching. And he will find you.
