MLB Ejection 120 - Will Little (3; Corey Ragsdale)

1B Umpire Will Little ejected Rangers 1B Coach Corey Ragsdale (Replay Review decision that overturned Little's out [catch] call to safe [drop]; QOCN) in the top of the 3rd inning of the #WhiteSox-#Rangers game. With one out and one on (R1), White Sox batter Jose Abreu hit a 1-1 cutter from Rangers pitcher Cole Ragans on a fly ball to right fielder Adolis Garcia, who attempted to catch the ball, ruled an out by 2B Umpire Fairchild and overturned via Replay Review following a challenge by White Sox manager Tony La Russa to no catch. Replays indicate Garcia failed to establish secure possession of the baseball in his glove such that the ball's release was voluntary and intentional, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rangers were leading, 1-0. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Will Little (93)'s 3rd ejection of 2022.
Will Little now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 9).
Crew Chief Chad Fairchild now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).
OBR's Definition of Terms: "A CATCH is the act of a fielder in getting secure possession in their hand or glove of a ball in flight and firmly holding it; providing they do not use their cap, protector, pocket, or any other part of their uniform in getting possession...
In establishing the validity of the catch, the fielder shall hold the ball long enough to prove that they have complete control of the ball and that their release of the ball is voluntary and intentional. If the fielder has made the catch and drops the ball while in the act of making a throw following the catch, the ball shall be adjudged to have been caught."

This is the 120th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
