MLB Ejection 055 - Joe West (2; Mike Shildt)

3B Umpire Joe West ejected Cardinals manager Mike Shildt (foreign substance; QOCU) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #Cardinals-#WhiteSox game. With one out and one on (R2), Cardinals pitcher Giovanny Gallegos replaced pitcher Genesis Cabrera. As Gallegos threw his warmup pitches, the umpires investigated Gallegos' hat, which appeared to have a visible dark spot in the center of its bill. West ordered Gallegos remove the hat and wear a substitute hat in its place, resulting in Shildt's ejection for arguing the umpire's order issued in accordance with Official Baseball Rule 8.01(b), which allows "Each umpire has authority to order a player, coach, manager or Club officer or employee to do or refrain from doing anything which affects the administering of these rules, and to enforce the prescribed penalties."* At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 1-0. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 4-0.

This is Joe West (22)'s 2nd ejection of 2021.
Joe West now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 5).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 9 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 9).
*OBR 8.01(d) states, "Each umpire has authority to disqualify any player, coach, manager or substitute for objecting to decisions or for unsportsmanlike conduct or language, and to eject such disqualified person from the playing field."
