MLB Actually Has A Rule About Using Twitter After Being Ejected

Ozzie Guillen was fined and suspended two games for a sort-of-off-the-field incident Wednesday. Soon after being ejected arguing balls and strikes in the first inning, Guillen fired off two Tweets: "This one is going to cost me a lot of money this is patetic." and: "Today a tough guy show up at yankee stadium."

Turns out the punishment isn't a Selig judgment call, as good as Selig's judgment has been. There are rules and regulations for this sort of thing! From the wire reports:

According to MLB rules, all social media messages must stop 30 minutes prior to the first pitch, and they can resume after the game at the individual club's discretion. Getting ejected is not an exemption from the rules.


So progressive. Soon MLB will use Mocksession's hastily uploaded animated .gifs for instant replay purposes.
