MLB Ejection 018 - Greg Gibson (2; Aaron Boone)

1B Umpire Greg Gibson ejected Yankees Manager Aaron Boone (untimely Replay Review challenge of run no-score time play; QOC) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Yankees-#Orioles game. With two out and the bases loaded, Yankees batter Gio Urshela hit a line drive to Orioles left fielder Austin Hays, who threw to third baseman Maikel Franco as Yankees baserunner R1 Aaron Judge slid into third base, ruled out by 3B Umpire Rob Drake, and runner R2 DJ LeMahieu arrived at home plate, ruled not to have scored prior to the third out by HP Umpire Will Little. Gibson subsequently denied Boone's attempt to challenge Little's time play decision, ruling that Boone had consumed more than 20 seconds from the end of the play until announcing his intent to challenge/request a review of the play to the umpires in contravention of Replay Review regulations. Replays indicate less than 20 seconds transpired from Little's effectuation of the no score mechanic until Boone's request to review the play, the call was incorrect. Play was reviewed and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (6-0), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 4-2. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Greg Gibson (53)'s second ejection of the 2021 MLB regular season.
Greg Gibson now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call* = 1).
