Our minor league featured ejection is 1B Umpire Jon Byrne's toss of Indianapolis Indians Manager Dean Treanor during the pre-game umpires' conference at home plate on Sunday June 16. Treanor was reportedly upset about a game-ending out call at first base on Saturday night and attempted to argue the call with plate umpire Doug Vines during the lineup card exchange. With two out and two on and the Durham Bulls leading Indianapolis 4-2 on Saturday night, Indians batter Jared Goedert grounded to Bulls second baseman Mike Fontenot, who threw to first baseman Vince Belnome ahead of Goedert for the final out of the ballgame.
