ABL Ejection - Greg Howard (Luke Hughes)

After setting an Australian Baseball League record by hitting two grand slams in one game against Geelong-Korea, Melbourne Aces DH Luke Hughes was ejected by 2B Umpire Greg Howard during an incident with the Korean bench in the 9th inning of an 8-1 ballgame.

2B Umpire Greg Howard ejected Aces DH Luke Hughes (Unsportsmanlike-NEC) in the middle of the 9th inning of the Aces-Korea game. After popping out to first baseman Yong-Wook Lee to conclude the top of the inning, an incident transpired between the Geelong-Korea bench and Aces fielders, resulting in Hughes' ejection from the game; Hughes set a league record by clubbing two grand slams and tied the ABL's single game RBI record (8) during Melbourne's preceding game against Geelong-Korea. At the time of the ejection, the Aces were leading, 8-1. The Aces ultimately won the contest, 8-1.
