MLB Ejections 047-48 - Doug Eddings (1-2; BOS-PHI)

3B Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Red Sox pitcher Kutter Crawford and Phillies P Matt Strahm (national anthem standoff delaying start of game) in the top of the 1st inning of the #RedSox-#Phillies game. Prior to the contest, following the traditional performing of the national anthem during pre-game festivities, Crawford and Strahm remained on the field of play in their positions as if the anthem were still occurring, despite it having ended. Because the players refused to leave the field of play so that the game could begin, they were ejected for improperly delaying the game. Replays indicate both players remained on the field even as Phillies starting pitcher Bailey Falter's warmup throws had concluded and the pre-game timing pitch clock had counted down to the scheduled first pitch. At the time of the ejections, the game was tied, 0-0. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 7-4.

These are Doug Eddings (88)'s 1st and 2nd ejections of 2023.
