Hao Wei Sent Off As Chinese Manager Caught Pushing Up On Opponent

Things got weird in the final minutes of today’s China-New Zealand match as Chinese manager Hao Wei earned an ejection for interfering with a Kiwi player who was attempting a throw-in.

Korean Legend Dae-Sung Koo Gets An Entertaining Ejection At 45

Pitcher Dae-Sung Koo was only in the MLB for 2005, but he had one memorable highlight that season when he scorched a double off Randy Johnson. (It was a neat moment.)

One instance that allows for wide latitude is what constitutes an ejectable offense.… »12/17/12 12:40pm12/17/12 12:40pm

Matt Kemp's Tirade Was Too Obscene For One Young Pirates Fan [UPDATE]

In the middle of Andre Ethier's second-inning at-bat today in Pittsburgh, Matt Kemp (who was in the dugout and had struck out the previous inning) was jawing at home plate umpire Angel Campos, who warned Kemp at least once to cool it.

A "Foreign Substance" On Joel Peralta's Glove Resulted In The Most Boring Ejection In Baseball History

Normally, when our esteemed umpires throw someone out of the game, it's done with a flair and excitement that fans of both sides can usually get behind. But when the umpiring crew in tonight's Nationals-Rays game discovered a "foreign substance" on the glove of Rays reliever Joel Peralta, the result was, thanks to… »6/19/12 11:50pm6/19/12 11:50pm
