MLB Ejection 056: Dan Bellino (2; Robin Ventura)
This is Dan Bellino (2)'s third ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Dan Bellino now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (9 Prev + 2 MLB + 1 Y [Crewmate] = 12).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 6 points in the Crew Division (5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 6).
*2B Umpire Tom Woodring is considered the calling umpire pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-2-c-1-a.
^Official Baseball Rule 7.08(a)(1) specifies a runner is out when, "He runs more than three feet away from his base path to avoid being tagged unless his action is to avoid interference with a fielder fielding a batted ball. A runner’s base path is established when the tag attempt occurs and is a straight line from the runner to the base he is attempting to reach safely." This is not a "skunk in the outfield" play because a play is actively being made on the runner. (Also not an issue of "baseline")
This is the 56th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 23rd Manager ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the White Sox's 1st ejection of 2014, T-4th in the AL Central (DET, KC 2; CLE, CWS, MIN 1).

This is Dan Bellino's first ejection since May 14, 2014 (Troy Tulowitzki; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
