UEFL: 2011 Ejections of the Year: Ed Rapuano and Alfonso Marquez

On July 2, Marquez ruled Phillies baserunner Chase Utley safe on a routine play at the plate. Rauch had been unhappy with what he perceived was an unfair strike zone and promptly was ejected for arguing balls and strikes.

Though his strike zone came into question, many commenters marveled at the sheer visual spectacle of a very angry 6’11” Rauch being restrained by three Blue Jays personnel, all the while ripping off his jersey and vehemently yelling at a calm and unflinching Marquez, who is 5’11” in height and considerably thinner than Rauch. As one UEFL’er put it, “This argument was ‘big league’. Awesome.”

Ed Rapuano now has 5 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (4 Previous + 1 Award = 5).
Alfonso Marquez now has 21 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (20 Previous + 1 Award = 21).

The article contains links to video footage of the ejections, the Rauch ejection is worth a look if you haven’t seen it yet.

Leyland goes on for a LONG time. At the end you can clearly see him looking for an excuse to argue with the only ump on the field he hadn't gotten to yet.
