Okay, I’m going to be honest, what you are about to see happened late Wednesday night, but I am telling you, this is something I just can’t take the chance of you not seeing.
See, it starts out with something that you have certainly seen, a batter getting ejected for arguing a called strike.
But it ends with him getting ejected for something I will guarantee you that you’ve never seen.
See Adrian Beltre, who is making a run at 3,000 career hits, was tossed from Wednesday’s Rangers-Marlins game after literally moving the on-deck circle closer towards the plate where he wanted to stand while warming up for an at-bat.
Marlins pitcher Drew Steckenrider asked Beltre to get closer to the circle, which is how things were initiated. But umpire Gerry Davis was not feeling Beltre’s sense of humor in the situation.
Not only was Beltre tossed from the game, but his manager, Jeff Banister, also got the heave-ho.
Hey, in Beltre’s defense, I can’t see why Davis didn’t get more of a laugh out of it.
Everyone else watching was—because the Rangers and Beltre were down 18-6 at the time.
