On Sunday afternoon, baseball fans witnessed one of the most bizarre ejections.
The Houston Astros led 7-3 in the bottom of the ninth when Michael A. Taylor came up to bat for the Kansas City Royals. Ryan Pressly was one out away from a victory when he was issued a warning for throwing the ball inside on Taylor.
Now just so we’re clear, the ball did not hit Taylor. It was just pitched far inside on him.
The situation at most called for a warning, but home plate umpire Vic Carapazza felt differently as he ended up straight up EJECTING Pressly.
Pressly spoke with the media following the game.
This situation was definitely unwarranted and completely bizarre.
