This is Bill Welke (3)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Bill Welke now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 1 point in Crew Division (1 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 1).
*Although the fair/foul call beyond the front edge of first/third base is ordinarily reserved for the base umpire, U3 Everitt clearly called the ball fair while plate umpire Welke clearly called it foul. Thus, in regards to ejector classification (UEFL Rule 6-2-c-1) this is deemed an "incorrectly ruled call by the ejector," as in UEFL Rule 4-2-b-3. Due to Welke's foul ball call, Everitt is deemed secondary while Welke is deemed the calling umpire (as Welke's foul ball call prevailed).
This is the seventh ejection report of 2017.
This is the 5th Manager ejection of 2017.
