MLB Ejection 045 - Pat Hoberg (1; Aaron Boone)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Yankees Manager Aaron Boone (strike one call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the Yankees-Rangers game. With two out and one on (R1), Yankees batter Gary Sanchez took a 1-0 fastball from Rangers pitcher Cole Hamels for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the midpoint (px 0.543, pz 3.416 [sz_top 3.467]) and that all callable pitches were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Rangers were leading, 6-1. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Pat Hoberg (31)'s first ejection of 2018.
Pat Hoberg now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has -3 points in Crew Division (-4 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -3).
