Two umpires in the Mexican Baseball League have been suspended for the remainder of this season for a terrible call during a game between Diablos Rojos del Mexico and the Algodoneros de Union Laguna on Tuesday. 

Per Deadspin's Tom Ley, umpires Ulises Dominguez Solis and Rodolfo Pastrana Tejeda combined to call a ball after the hitter clearly swung at a pitch in the first inning. 

Yahoo Sports' Chris Cwik noted two other umpires not involved in the call also received a warning from the league for not intervening when the check swing was called.
