MLB Ejection 173 - Manny Gonzalez (2; Keon Broxton)

HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Mariners RF Keon Broxton (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the #Yankees-#Mariners game. With two out and none on, Broxton took a 3-2 fastball from Yankees pitcher J.A. Happ. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 0.81, pz 3.11[sz_top 3.52]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 4-3. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

After the strike three call, Broxton threw his batting gloves in Gonzalez's direction; this equipment appeared to make contact with umpire Gonzalez's face. Precedent: In June, Asdrubal Cabrera received a four-game suspension for throwing his batting gloves at the feet of Bill Miller in Texas.
