MLB Ejection 056 - Ted Barrett (1; Brian Snitker)

1B Umpire Ted Barrett ejected Braves Manager Brian Snitker (balk call) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Braves-Angels game. With two out and one on (R1), Braves pitcher Jaime Garcia was called for a balk while attempting to pick off Angels baserunner R1 Shane Robinson. Replays indicate Garcia failed to step directly toward first base before throwing to the base; he stepped toward home plate, the call was correct.* Play was reviewed and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (8-0-1), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 1-0. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is Ted Barrett (65)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Ted Barrett now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).

*Official Baseball Rule 6.02(a)(3) states, "It is a balk when: fails to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base. [COMMENT]: Requires the pitcher, while touching his plate, to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base."
