MLB Ejection 053 - Toby Basner (1; Josh Donaldson)

HP Umpire Toby Basner ejected Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 1st inning of the Blue Jays-Twins game. With one out and none on, Donaldson took a 2-0 fastball from Twins pitcher Pat Dean for a called first strike before grounding out on the ensuing pitch. Replays indicate the called strike was located over the heart of home plate and knee high (px -.010, pz 1.671 [sz_bot 1.590]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 5-3.
