MLB Ejection 051 - Hunter Wendelstedt (1; Adam Eaton)

HP Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ejected White Sox CF Adam Eaton for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Royals-White Sox game. With two out and one on, Eaton took a 2-2 fastball from Royals pitcher Wade Davis for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and belt high (px -.66, pz 2.724) and that all preceding pitches during the at-bat had been properly officiated by Wendelstedt, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals had won the contest, 4-1.

This is Hunter Wendelstedt (21)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Hunter Wendelstedt now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 QOCY = 5).
Crew Chief Jerry Layne now has 8 points in Crew Division (7 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 8).
