I have a unique perspective with Vitz because I was with him on 2019 with Precision and also because it's my player that he's alleged to have "thrown his glove/equipment" at.
First and foremost, that is something that Vitz has done in the past (throw his glove) out of frustration when he's been hit at numerous times. Whether you agree with it being right or wrong is your own opinion but unless you're toeing the mound against Resmondo, Smash It, MPT, Monsta, Proton and CE every weekend, the opinion of it being wrong matters very little.
Vitz wasn't throwing his equipment at my player (Roton) and I could be wrong but I believe Roton told me Vitz immediately apologized and told him his intent was to just throw it, not throw it towards him. Either way it deserved an ejection and I believe he served a 1-2 game (or even the rest of the tournament) suspension afterwards. Not sure anything else is warranted on that one.
As for others:
You can't threaten officials with violence. That should be a multiple tournament ban.
You also can't make threatening moves from the mound as a pitcher yelling obscenities at the home plate umpire because you're not getting a coddled strike zone because you're "the Goat".
I threw my hat at the fence when I got ejected for arguing lackadaisical workmanship on positioning during close calls. I'd like to apologize to the fence as I almost hit it.
Other than that I thought the officiating was consistent and better this weekend.
I thought Marshall Grissom did a fantastic job at getting sponsors/manager's input in between games.

Vs Resmondo.....Why didn't Albicocco rush to check on Vitz after he was hit and laying on the inf in pain? Took infielders forever and their catcher talked to Resmondo players , never checking on his pitcher. Very interesting

Flip, unfortunately, makes it very easy for others to hate on him. Phenomenal hitter, but from his long routine before he gets into the box, to his constant working of the umpires and complaining about each pitch to his chirpingÖ..
Yes, many of these guys do the same thing(s) he does, some even do them worse, but with this guy it seems itís every tournament, every game, every AB etc.
