MLB Ejection 012 - Manny Gonzalez (1; Brian Snitker)

3B Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Braves manager Brian Snitker (foul ball call overturned via Replay Review to fair & runner placement) in the top of the 2nd inning of the #Braves-#Royals game. With none out and one on (R1), Braves batter Matt Olson hit a 1-1 fastball from Royals pitcher Brady Singer on a line drive to left fielder Edward Olivares, originally ruled a foul ball by 3B Umpire Gonzalez and overturned via Replay Review as as result of a manager's challenge by Snitker. As part of the Replay Review, the Replay Official placed runners at first and second base. Replays indicate that Braves baserunner R1 Ronald Acuña Jr returned to first base to tag up and didn't leave until the ball was dropped and 3B Umpire Gonzalez had called the foul ball, at which time outfielder Olivares had stopped playing, and that batter-runner Olson's advancement was limited by preceding baserunner Acuña's placement, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 5-1. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 10-3.

This is Manny Gonzalez (79)'s 1st ejection of 2023.

This is the 12th ejection report of the 2023 MLB regular season.
This is the 4th manager ejection of 2023.
