Posted by mandyf on May 18, 2012

Both Toronto Blue Jay’s third baseman Brett Lawrie and skipper John Farrell were ejected from Tuesday’s game versus the Tampa Bay Rays after a heated argument following a strike 3 call. Lawrie was also issued a 4 game fine and fined an undisclosed amount for an altercation with home plate umpire Bill Miller.Lawrie disagreed with the final 2 calls of his at bat – both strikes from Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney – and slammed his helmet to the ground upon hearing the strike 3 call. Lawrie was immediately ejected as his helmet bounced back and come in contact with Miller. Manager John Farrell came out to defend his player, and did not leave the field until he himself was ejected.
