Ejections: Marty Foster (5)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected A's Batting Coach Gerald Perry for arguing a strike two call in top of the 4th inning of the A's-Yankees game. With none out and one on, A's batter Josh Willingham took a 1-1 fastball for strike two from Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes. Replays indicate the pitch was located below the midpoint between the batter's shoulders and top of uniform pants and over home plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 14-5. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 17-7.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s fifth ejection of 2011.
Marty Foster now has 20 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (16 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 20).
Marty Foster was not drafted in 2011.

This is the 126th ejection of 2011.
This ejection was not originally listed in the box score, but was added shortly before Saturday's A's-Yankees game.
This is Gerald Perry's first ejection of 2011 and first ejection since being re-hired in June as Batting Coach for the A's.

Wrap: A's at Yankees 7/22/11
