MLB Ejection 146 - Shane Livensparger (2; John Schneider)

HP Umpire Shane Livensparger ejected Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider (ball four call; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Angels-#BlueJays game. With two out and two on (R2, R3), Angels batter Mike Ford took a 3-1 curveball from Blue Jays pitcher Yimi Garcia for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.70, pz 1.11 [sz_bot 1.51 / RAD 1.39 / MOE 1.30]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 1-0. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is Shane Livensparger (43)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.
*This pitch was located 2.33 vertical inches from being deemed incorrect.

This is the 146th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is the 80th manager ejection of 2022.
This is Toronto's 9th ejection of 2022, 2nd in the AL East (NYY 10; TOR 9; BOS 6; BAL 4; TB 3).
This is John Schneider's 1st ejection since August 26, 2021 (Jordan Baker; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
