Maine’s Butterfield Gets 7th Career Ejection [VIDEO]
Third Base coaches don't often get tossed from major league games but Maine's Brian Butterfield got ejected from yesterday's Red Sox game in Detroit.
For Butterfield, it was his seventh ejection of his career.
It came in the third inning after a controversial play in rightfield. Umpires ruled Jackie Bradley Jr. had caught a fly ball. Upon review, he did not catch it and the umpires ended up placing tiger runners at first and third, despite one runner passing the other on the basepath.
Mananger John Farrell argued but did not get tossed.
Shortly afterward, Butterfield got kicked out. The first base ump, Jerry Layne thought Butterfield was arguing balls and strikes at the time.
The ejection is likely to come with a fine, payable to the commissioner's office.
