Earl Weaver of the Baltimore Orioles was ejected from more than 100 ballgames in his managerial career. Billy Martin (Tigers, Rangers, A’s, Yankees, Yankees, Yankees…) certainly had to rival that number. While these two (geniuses, clowns: pick one) were known for their hot heads and argumentative nature, I have witnessed far more docile managers ejected for far less sever infractions.
What, if any, are the guidelines for being ejected from a baseball game? Are the rules different for managers and players? Or, aside from the “cocksucker” moniker, are the umpires allowed to act upon their own discretion?
