MiLB Ejection of the Week: Will Little (3, 4, 5)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Pawtucket Red Sox pitcher Pedro Beato for throwing at Indianapolis Indians batter Josh Harrison and Red Sox Manager Gary DiSarcina and first baseman Brandon Snyder for arguing Beato's ejection (Unsportsmanlike-NEC) in the top of the 7th inning of the Indians-PawSox (Red Sox) game.
Little tosses DiSarcina after Beato's heave.
With one out and none on, Harrison took a 1-1 fastball inside for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located head-high and inside resulting in Beato's immediate ejection, the call was irrecusable. Warnings had not previously been issued; this was an immediate expulsion pursuant to Rule 8.02(d)(1), which states that if, in the umpire's judgment, a pitcher intentionally pitches at the batter, the umpire may elect to expel the pitcher, or the manager and the pitcher, from the game, in lieu of issuing a warning pursuant to 8.02(d)(2). At the time of the ejection, the Red Sox were leading, 6-4. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 9-8.

These are Will Little's 3rd, 4th and 5th ejections of the 2013 International League season (Triple-A).

As always, credit to Russ for the continued Triple-A umpire ejection scouting and reporting.

Welp, looks like we won't be seeing Will Little in the big leagues any time soon. Busch league ejection.

Look, I Can Create A Fake Handle Too, And Know Nothing.

I thought it was "Bush League"? When did Anheiser-Busch enter the picture?

You say that like you expect me to actually pay attention to what I write.

Did you notice how our former MiLB person posting on here got promoted? Two days ago he was a former AA umpire, then yesterday he was a former AAA umpire. So, rather than arguing over the ejection, why not congratulate the guy on getting the call up to the next level?

It's Bush League because there's a bush somewhere outside the park.
