MLB Ejection 010: Sam Holbrook (5; B.J. Upton)

HP Umpire Sam Holbrook ejected Braves CF B.J. Upton for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Braves-Pirates game. With none out and none on, Upton took a 3-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Wandy Rodriguez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of the plate and at the knees (px -.117, pz 1.868, sz_bot 1.625), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 6-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 6-0.

This is Sam Holbrook (34)'s 5th ejection of 2013.
Sam Holbrook now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (8 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief Sam Holbrook now has 6 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (5 Previous + 1 Correct = 6).

This is the 10th ejection of the 2013 MLB season.
This is the 8th player ejection of 2013.
Prior to his ejection, Upton was 0-3 in the contest with two strikeouts.
This is the Braves' 1st ejection of 2013, 1st in the NL East (ATL 1; MIA, NYM, PHI, WAS 0).
This is B.J. Upton's first ejection since September 23, 2011 (Ed Hickox; QOC = Y).
This is Sam Holbrook's 1st ejection since 4/11 (Dodgers Hairston/Greinke/Kemp & Padre Quentin; QOC = U).

Joe West going on vacation has been the best thing to happen to UEFL owners of umpire Sam Holbrook since the Infield Fly... speaking of which. Atlanta must still be bitter...

Sam was right back then, and he's right now.

Gil Imber said...

What the hell is Upton doing? The pitch is right down the middle of the plate - SWING the bat!

Gil Imber said...

I made the mistake of making him a secondary umpire.... DARN!

That looked like one of those ".167 batting average with a $75 million contract" blow ups to me, lol.

Shoo, rat! Shoo! Love it!!


Only that criminal would argue that dick shot. If he thinks that's down, he's even more clueless than I thought.
