MLB Ejection 077 - Paul Clemons (2; Matt Quatraro)

2B Umpire Paul Clemons ejected Royals manager Matt Quatraro (obstruction no-call/out; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the #Yankees-#Royals game. With two out and one on, Royals baserunner Bobby Witt Jr was picked off and caught stealing by Yankees pitcher Nestor Cortes, who threw to shortstop Anthony Volpe as Witt arrived at second base, called out by 2B Umpire Clemons, who ruled fielder Volpe did not obstruct the runner Witt. Replays indicate Volpe gained possession of the baseball prior to placing his foot in Witt's path, blocking the runner's access to second base; this is not obstruction due to possession, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 2-0. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Paul Clemons (104)'s 2nd ejection of 2024.
Official Baseball Rules Definition of Terms: "Obstruction is the act of a fielder who, while not in possession of the ball and not in the act of fielding the ball, impedes the progress of any runner."
