Wally Backman Ejected Video?

SC. Peanuts manager Wally Backman was ejected in one of his games.
He defended Brooks and got ejected in the process. He then got really mad and started to swear at the guy who kicked him out. He also threw all his team's bats on the field.
Everything was recorded on video, I was watching Fox News and they mentioned the video of Wally Backman is online.

Where can I find the video?

The events that led to Wally Backman's ejection:

* Outfielder Doc Brooks questions the location of a called strike
* Later in the same at bat, the umpire calls a ball
* Brooks looks at the umpire, words are exchanged
* Brooks is ejected, Backman emerges from the dugout
* Backman asks why his player was ejected, the umpire refuses to answer him, saying "You can read it in my report."

Following the ejection, Backman threw 22 bats and a bucket of balls onto the field.
The video is on youtube.

Given the umpire was fined for his actions maybe Wally didn't go off enough.
I do think umpires are not supposed to be seen or heard from and they have too much power in tossing players and managers. There should be a review system after the game, and umpires should be penalized for an unnecessary toss.
