Ejections: Marvin Hudson (1, 2)

HP Umpire Marvin Hudson ejected Braves shortstop Alex Gonzalez and Manager Fredi Gonzalez for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Cardinals-Braves game. With one out and none on, Braves batter Alex Gonzalez took a 3-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Fernando Salas for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located at the knees and over the inside corner of home plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 3-2. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Marvin Hudson (51)'s first and second ejection of 2011.
Marvin Hudson now has 8 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 8).
Marvin Hudson is owned as a Secondary Umpire by mtn335, who is now in 2nd place in the UEFL with 6 points.

This is the 18th and 19th ejection of 2011.
This is the 10th Manager ejection of 2011.
This is the 7th player ejection of 2011.

Is it possible Marvin Hudson is a participant in the league and has himself... He blows the call the other night and allows himself to be dressed down by multiple people but tonight has a quick hook for freddy.. all joking aside Hudson is in second place with his team after these EJs

Just found this picture from that Hudson call in DC the other night, and truly shows he should have ejected him.
