MLB Ejection 128 - Jansen Visconti (2; John Gibbons)

1B Umpire Jansen Visconti ejected Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons (safe call at first base; QOCN) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Blue Jays-Yankees game. With one out and the bases loaded, Yankees batter Greg Bird hit a 1-1 slider from Blue Jays pitcher Tim Mayza on the ground to first baseman Kendrys Morales, who threw to catcher Danny Jansen for the force out on R3 Miguel Andujar, back to second baseman Devon Travis covering first base in an attempt to complete the inning-ending double play, Bird ruled safe at first for a fielder's choice and Toronto unable to challenge the call due to an unsuccessful challenge earlier in the inning. Replays indicate after Travis leapt in the air to field Jansen's high throw, his cleat appeared to make contact with first base prior to batter-runner Bird's arrival, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 8-2. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 10-2.

This is Jansen Visconti (52)'s second ejection of 2018.
Jansen Visconti now has -3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 AAA - 4 Incorrect Call = -3).
Crew Chief Larry Vanover now has 17 points in Crew Division (17 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 17).
