ABL Ejection - Stewart Howe (Luke Hughes)

1B Umpire Stewart Howe ejected Melbourne Aces 1B Luke Hughes (safe call; QOCN) in the top of the 4th inning of the Aces-Geelong-Korea game. With two out and none on, Korea batter Yong-Wook Lee hit a ground ball to Aces second baseman Ryan Dale, whose throw to Hughes pulled the first baseman off the bag such that he attempted to re-tag first base after catching the ball, as the runner arrived. Replays indicate Hughes' left foot made contact with the inner edge of first base prior to Lee's left foot arriving at the front edge of the base, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Aces were leading, 6-5. The Aces ultimately won the contest, 18-12.
