MLB Ejection 049 - Will Little (2; David Ross)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Cubs manager David Ross (warnings/ejection no-call for potential throwing at HBP) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Cubs-#Reds game. With none out and none on, Cubs batter Willson Contreras took a first-pitch fastball from Reds pitcher Joel Kuhnel for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Contreras in the left arm; no warnings had previously been issued and Contreras was the first (and only) hit batter of the game, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 13-5. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 20-5.

This is Will Little (93)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.
Will Little now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 7).
Crew Chief Chris Conroy now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Prev + 1 Irrecusable Call = 1).
