MLB Ejection 166 - Todd Tichenor (1; Terry Francona)

1B Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Guardians manager Terry Francona (denied manager's challenge/replay review request; QOCY) in the top of the 1st inning of the #Guardians-#WhiteSox game. With one out and one on, Guardians batter Jose Ramirez hit a 1-0 changeup from White Sox pitcher Mike Clevinger on a fly ball to left fielder Zach Remillard, who threw to second baseman Jake Burger to first baseman Andrew Vaughn to double off Guardians baserunner R1 Steven Kwan. Francona was denied his manager's challenge after taking too long to signal a hold prior to requesting a review. Replay Review regulations require the manager signal hold immediately after the conclusion of play; replays indicate Francona did not signal hold (hand up) until 11 seconds after the conclusion of play, the call (that Francona's challenge was untimely) was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 7-2.

This is Todd Tichenor (13)'s 1st ejection of 2023.
