MLB Ejection 200 - Tripp Gibson (2; David Ross)

3B Umpire Tripp Gibson ejected Cubs manager David Ross (balk no-calls on White Sox pitcher Lane Ramsey) in the bottom of the 6th of the #WhiteSox-#Cubs game. Ross was ejected during the inning break following Ramsey's 6th inning appearance, alleging that Ramsey's routine in coming set constituted a balk; however, a review of the balk rules suggest that because Ramsey's rocking movements concluded with a definitive stop point in coming Set—and the pitcher did definitively stop in Set Position prior to starting his delivery, the no-call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Tripp Gibson (73)'s 2nd ejection of 2023.

This is the 200th ejection report of the 2023 MLB regular season.
