MLB Ejection 003 - Paul Emmel (1; Brad Ausmus)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Tigers Manager Brad Ausmus for arguing a ball two call in the top of the 5th inning of the Yankees-Tigers game. With one out and none on, Yankees batter Starlin Castro took a 1-1 fastball from Tigers pitcher Buck Farmer for a called second ball. Replays indicate that of the two callable pitches ruled a ball and preceding ejection to Castro and to earlier batters Brian McCann (single) and Carlos Beltran (home run), all were properly officiated as balls (5/5, 100% Accuracy), including the call immediately preceding ejection, which was located off the inner edge of home plate and letter-high (px -1.272*, pz 3.369), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 8-2. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 8-4.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Paul Emmel now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*Px would have to had been less than |.916| in order for the pitch to have been a strike.

This is the 2nd Manager ejection of 2016.
This is the Tigers' 1st ejection of 2016, 1st in the AL Central (DET 1; CLE, CWS, KC, MIN 0).
