MLB Ejections 109-110 - Gerry Davis (1-2; Beltre, Banister)

2B Umpire Gerry Davis ejected Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre & Manager Jeff Banister (moving on-deck circle in defiance of order) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Marlins-Rangers game. With two out and the bases loaded, Rangers batter Nomar Mazara stepped to the plate and Beltre became the on-deck hitter. Replays indicate that Beltre assumed his position outside of the on-deck circle and closer to home plate in contravention of Official Baseball Rule Appendix 1, prompting 2B Umpire Davis to order Beltre into his on-deck circle pursuant to Rule 8.01, the call was irrecusable. After review, the Original Ruling has been affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (9-0-0), the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Marlins were leading, 18-6. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 22-10.

This is Gerry Davis (12)'s first, second ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Gerry Davis now has -1 points in the UEFL Standings (-5 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call] = -1).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has -5 points in Crew Division (-7 Previous + 2 Irrecusable Call = -5).
*Diagram No. 1 states that the next batter's box (aka the on-deck circle) shall be a circle five-feet in diameter, whose position shall be at the end of a 37-foot measurement taken parallel to the front edge of home plate and measured from the intersection of the edge of the dirt circle and line drawn from the point of plate, extended toward the backstop at an angle perpendicular to the front edge of home plate.
*Rule 8.01(a) states, in part, "The umpires shall be responsible for the conduct of the game in accordance with these official rules and for maintaining discipline and order on the playing field during the game."
Rule 8.01(b) states, in part, "Each umpire has authority to order a player, coach, manager or club officer or employee to do or refrain from doing anything which affects the administering of these rules, and to enforce the prescribed penalties."
Rule 8.01(d) states, in part, "Each umpire has authority to disqualify any player, coach, manager or substitute for objecting to decisions or for unsportsmanlike conduct or language, and to eject such disqualified person from the playing field."
