Wrigley Field usher interrupts TV interview with Clint Hurdle’s father

Welcome to the not-so-friendly confines of Wrigley Field?
During the fifth inning of the Chicago Cubs 6-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Root Sports broadcaster Robby Incmikoski — not to be confused with former Pirates infielder Rob Mackowiak — conducted an in-game interview with the father of Pirates manager Clint Hurdle — also Clint Hurdle but doesn't go by the title Sr. — that ended in the most unusual manner. Check it out!

The interview took place with both men standing in an aisle way about halfway up the lower section of seats behind the first base dugout. Obviously not the most convenient place as the view of several fans was blocked, but Incmikoski was determined to talk to Mr. Hurdle — who actually traveled with the team to Wrigley Field as a part of their special fathers road trip — about the team's success this season.
The first 90 seconds or so went smoothly, then around the 1:45 mark of the video a little commotion can be overheard. When the camera returns, we see that a Wrigley Field usher had grown impatient, perhaps at the urging of some fans, and was putting the kabosh on the interview. And so it ended just strangely and just that awkwardly, because let me tell you something folks, those Wrigley Field ushers mean business.
