Australian Baseball Ejection - Stewart Howe

Australian Baseball League HP Umpire Stewart Howe ejected Adelaide Bite 3B Marc Wik for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 5th inning of the Bite-Aces game. With one out and none on, Bite batter Wik took a 1-2 fastball from Aces pitcher Yasuo Sano for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located near the inner edge of home plate and belt-high, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Aces ultimately won the contest, 7-1.
