Alexei Ramirez was up to bat for the White Sox, as they trailed the Cubs by the score of 6-3 in the sixth inning. Ramirez rolled a pitch on top of the plate, and Cubs catcher Geovany Soto picked up the ball, and tagged him out for the easiest groundout you'll ever see.
However, it appeared that the ball may have actually been behind home plate when Soto picked it up, which would make it a foul ball. And of course, Ozzie Guillen wanted to have a word with the home plate umpire after the play. And of course, he was soon ejected... and then treated Soto's catcher's mask like a soccer ball, which made Soto crack up in laughter.
Here's video, which I took:
Hilarious stuff, and classic Ozzie.
And here's a better look at the play that shows the umpire may have indeed gotten the call right:
The Cubs would go on to win by that same 6-3 score.
Oh, and let this serve as a reminder that I also have a Cubs blog.
UPDATE: MLB of course took my videos down due to the incredibly lame, 1993-esque MLB video copyright crap. Here's a video from them(apparently there's embed code for MLB.Com videos now?) of the ejection though:
