VIDEO: Rangers' Beltre and Banister get ejected
In the fifth inning of Sunday's game, Rangers manager Jeff Banister and third baseman Adrian Beltre were both tossed for arguing balls and strikes. At first, it was hard to tell which guys umpires Adam Hamari and Ron Kulpa had thrown out in which order.
That prompted this tweet:
Template for future use: ______ ejected _____ for ______. Subsequently, ______ was ejected by ______. Sincerely, #UmpShowInc— Matthew B. Mowery (@matthewbmowery) August 23, 2015
(For the record, I think it was Beltre by Hamari, followed by Banister by Kulpa, but you can see for yourself.)
Check out the video here:
Maybe Banister just wanted more time for another trip to Ann Arbor to hang out with University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
