The umpires met to make a decision and talked for five minutes, until the umpire ejected the pitcher.
The Crepusculars’ manager, Henry Blanco, angrily walked onto the field to demand punishment and had a heated argument with the principal, who ejected him from the game.
For his part, communicator Marco Ruiz stated that the umpire’s decision was “exaggerated”, as a mere warning to the pitcher was sufficient.
There’s talk of Lara vs. the Cardinals. La Guerra Sharks in LVBP Grand Finals…
If your intention as an umpire is to protect the game, you should not have thrown out pitcher Benoit. Judgment more than exaggeration. The warning was enough.
Henry Blanco was also expelled.
