An umpire at a youth baseball game made a surprising call on a third strike leading to laughter from the bleachers.

Upon the batter's third miss, the umpire yelled out, "Whoomp! There it is!" accompanied by a little jig.

The line was a reference to the song of the same name by 1990s rappers Tag Team.

The Instagram video of the incident has since gone viral, with dozens of retweets and comments on both social media websites.
