MLB Ejection 206: John Hirschbeck (6; Joe Girardi)

3B Umpire John Hirschbeck ejected Yankees Manager Joe Girardi for a repeat visit argument (DiMuro Rule) in the top of the 3rd inning of the Yankees-Mets game. In the 2nd, with one out and none on, Yankees batter Greg Bird attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 slider from Mets pitcher Matt Harvey. Replays indicate Girardi left the Yankees dugout to argue with Hirschbeck, but was not ejected at that time; Hirschbeck later ejected Girardi during a subsequent inning break, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 1-0. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 11-2.

This is John Hirschbeck (17)'s sixth ejection of 2015.
John Hirschbeck now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable = 9).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 18 points in Crew Division (17 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 18).
