History states that Ty Cobb fought several umpires during his career, none on the field of play. This was at a time when umpires were shown very little respect and it was not unusual for players to attempt to intimidate umpires on the field.

If players tried to do something like that in today's game they would be suspended immediately and probably for a very long time.

No. An umpire is a referee on the field. However, on the recommendation by the officiating staff, park security can (and has) removed patrons from the stands for violations of stadium regulations.

Who makes the call when a player misses the base while advancing the umpire or the coach.?

A coach may yell out from the dugout but, it is up to which ever player has the ball when the play is over. All he has to do is touch the contested base with the ball in his hand. The umpire will either rule safe or out. It has to happen before another pitch is thrown.
