AAA pitcher gets ejected, quits baseball

Recommended Posts

The One Timer



The short version: The Kansas City Royals' AAA affiliate from Omaha was beating up on the San Diego Padres' affiliate from Tucson, by what would wind up being a 20-3 final score. Omaha's players jumped on plastic cups after scoring a run, as is their tradition. Tucson's pitching coach didn't like it, and barked at the opposing dugout. During this little break in the action, reliever Alexis Lara told his third baseman he was throwing at the next batter. He did, and, per league rules was thrown out.


After some argument with the umpire, Tucson's manager got thrown out too. Lara's manager laid into him on the field, down the steps, and into the clubhouse. Lara, never really viewed as a quality prospect, said he was quitting the game for good, and couldn't have his mind changed.
