MLB Ejection 118: Pat Hoberg (1; Seth Maness)

1B Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Cardinals P Seth Maness for arguing a fair ball call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Cardinals-Cubs game. With one out and two on, Cubs batter Addison Russell hit a 1-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Maness on the ground down the first base line, ruled a fair ball by Hoberg. Replays indicate the ball first contacted the ground near home plate in foul territory, but landed on the foul line at approximately the 80-foot-mark and appeared to bounce over the front edge of first base in fair territory before again bouncing foul in the outfield grass, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Pat Hoberg (31)'s first ejection of 2015.
Pat Hoberg now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 7).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has -4 points in Crew Division (-5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -4).
