MiLB Ejection of Week: Ben May (1)

Umpire Ben May and the Toledo Mud Hens have our MiLB Ejection of the Week, with second baseman Danny Worth ejected between innings during Toledo's walk-off victory vs. the Indanapolis Indians on Thursday in AAA's International League. (Video: Fair/Foul call precedes inning break ejection)

Ejected during inning break after reaching base, scoring
With one out and none on in the bottom of the 6th inning, Worth hit a 0-1 fastball from Indians pitcher Bryan Morris down the right field line, ruled a foul ball by 1B Umpire May. Worth reached first base on the next pitch following what was ruled a passed ball and throwing error by Indians catcher Tony Sanchez and scored on consecutive singles by teammates Audy Ciriaco and Bryan Holaday. Though replays suggest the ball may have landed in fair territory, Worth was ejected arguing the call after the inning's conclusion, rendering QOC "irrecusable." At the time of the ejection, the Mud Hens were leading, 4-2. The Mud Hens ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

Talk about not letting it go. The guy gets on base and scores... That's just stupid to get tossed there.

Another notable ejection was everybody's favorite call-up Umpire Angel Campos who ejected Las Vegas LF Daniel Perales from his position in Left Field. He had been called out on strikes in the previous inning. That was Campos 6th ejection in the PCL and 12th ejection overall this season. (8/28)

Can anyone tell me, CCS if this regulars are working in the minor leagues A,AA, AAA games so are any of them close to return?

Nelson Cruz ejected by Bill Welke. After striking out swinging he slammed his bat on home plate and it broke, then Cruz said something to Welke and was tossed. There was a questionable strike call during that at-bat.

The splintered part of the bat nearly hit Welke.

Surprised to hear that Worth got tossed, not surprised that Campos had an ejection, as for the soccer red card, insulting the ref's mother? Not smart.

How does CCS know about the specifics of these? I had an ejection earlier in year, and it was on their twitter feed before the game was over, and knew what it pertained to even.
