Pre-Season Ejection 002: D.J. Reyburn (1)

HP Umpire D.J. Reyburn ejected Mets Manager Terry Collins for arguing a batter's interference call in the top of the 8th inning of the Mets-Marlins game. With one out and none on, Mets batter Jordany Valdespin bunted a fastball from Marlins pitcher J.D. Martin to catcher Kyle Skipworth. As Skipworth was attempting to field the bunt, Reyburn called Valdespin out for interfering with Skipworth's attempt to play the fair ball. Video replay is unavailable, this ejection does not carry a Quality of Correctness. At the time of the ejection, the Marlins were leading, 3-1. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is D.J. Reyburn (70)'s first pre-season ejection of 2012.
No points are awarded for ejections during the Spring Training period (Phase i), as per Rules 2 and 4.

D.J. Reyburn also had a pre-season ejection in 2009 when he ejected Dusty Baker for arguing a strike call.

How do you even find out about these ejections if there is no artical or video anywhere? What site do you find them on? Or do you just go on every games box score to see if there is an ejection?

We reference box scores and news from around the web, in that order. Spring training ejections are more difficult to discover since preseason scorers and gameday stringers don't always have the tools to see or report everything that happens on the field.
