MiLB Ejection: Ron Teague (Joe Mikulik)
"We are rapidly digressing here from a very valid argument to a third grader who just lost his lunch box."
Though Mikulik's argument eventually devolved into what has become known as a typical Mikulik post-ejection tantrum, replays indicate Teague did not see the ball lying on the ground until after he had already signaled the baserunner out at home, a call upheld after consultation and a brief conference with 1B Umpire Clay Park and 3B Umpire Clayton Hamm.
This is Joe Mikulik's first ejection temper tantrum since April 11, 2015 (U1 Bryan Fields; Throwing At), or September 3, 2014 (PU Travis Godec, U3 Rich Grassa; HR/Not HR), or if stealing third base isn't tantrum-worthy, maybe July 28, 2012 (U1 Mike Patterson; Safe/Out) or his 2006 Asheville Tourists performance.
Box score: Frisco RoughRiders vs. Midland RockHounds (MiLB AA Texas League), 6/16/15
