MLB Ejection 115 - Will Little (1; Miguel Cabrera)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Tigers DH Miguel Cabrera (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Red Sox-Tigers game. With none out and one on (R2), Cabrera took a 1-2 fastball from Red Sox pitcher David Price for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the midpoint (px -0.37, pz 3.33 [sz_top 3.53]) and that all other pitches during the half-inning were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Tigers were leading, 1-0. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

This is Will Little (93)'s first ejection of 2019.
Will Little now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (-3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 1).
