MLB Ejection 019: Jim Reynolds (2; Curt Young)

1B Umpire Jim Reynolds ejected A's Pitching Coach Curt Young for arguing a check swing call (unsportsmanlike: arguing a previous play) in the top of the 3rd inning of the Orioles-A's game. With one out and none on, Orioles batter Noland Reimold attempted to check his swing on a 1-1 fastball from A's pitcher Jarrod Parker. Young was ejected after Adam Jones' double four batters later, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 3-2. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 10-2.

This is Jim Reynolds (77)'s 2nd ejection of 2013.
Jim Reynolds now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 6).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 3 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (1 + 1 Irrecusable Call = 2).
*UEFL Rule 6-5-c-3 specifies that "Ejections, wherein an argument for a previously ruled play (either correct or incorrect) continues into a later play (i.e., some point after a pitch has been delivered to the next batter), shall be ruled irrecusable under Rule 6-2-b-5, which states that these ejections, which are colloquially deemed 'Unsportsmanlike Conduct-NEC,' are ordinarily not assigned a QOC."
^Prop Bet #2: Date of first non-player/non-Manager ejection winners: Russ (4/24) and wwjd220 (4/26).

This is the 19th ejection of the 2013 MLB season.
This is the Athletics' 2nd ejection of 2013, 1st in the AL West (OAK 2; HOU, LAA, SEA, TEX 0).
This is Curt Young's first career ejection.
This is Jim Reynolds' first ejection since April 13 (Cliff Pennington; QOC = Y).

Wrap: Baltimore Orioles vs. Oakland Athletics, 4/25/13

The best part of that whole thing was Bob Davidson standing in the background watching, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.

Bob's starting to grow into his own. No longer that gruff barking bob character, he does his job the right way nowadays.

I thought the same thing. I think after his career ends in umpiring WWE has a job for him. He knows how to stir it up. =-)

Hirschbeck has 3 points, but really 2?

For all of the Joe West fans out there he started a "rehab" assignment in the PCL at Oklahoma City on Thursday night. If he throws anyone out in the minors do those points count? lol.

This seems like a pointless ejection to me. I mean what is Young doing arguing with Reynolds about a check swing way after the fact? He should let the manager handle that stuff.

Anyone have a link to the video of the check swing?
