MLB Ejection 119 - Bill Welke (3; Alex Cora)

HP Umpire Bill Welke ejected Red Sox manager Alex Cora (Replay Review decision that upheld HR [out of play fair ball] call by 3B Umpire Gabe Morales; QOCN) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #RedSox-#Royals game. With none out and two on, Royals batter Salvador Perez hit a 0-0 fastball from Red Sox pitcher Darwinzon Hernandez on a line drive to left field, ruled a home run by 3B umpire Gabe Morales and upheld as such following a challenge by Red Sox manager Cora. Replays indicate the batted ball struck the top corner of the outfield wall/padding adjacent to the foul pole but did not make contact with the foul pole above the fence-line before rebounding into the field of play, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 7-3. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 7-3.

This is Bill Welke (3)'s 3rd ejection of 2022.
Bill Welke now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
Crew Chief Bill Welke now has 1 point in Crew Division (1 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 1).
*The Kauffman Stadium Ground Rules provide that a "batted ball in flight that strikes any portion of the seating area safety fencing, including the railings," shall be considered in play similar to a ball striking the top of an outfield wall. If the ball then bounds over the outfield wall and out of play, it is a home run. If it bounds back onto the playing field, it is considered in play. A ball striking a foul pole below the fence-line shall be considered in play, similar to a ball hitting off the outfield wall.
Pursuant to the universal ground rules, "all yellow lines are in play."

This is the 64th manager ejection of 2022.
