Baseball Manager Meltdown

South Georgia Peanuts manager Wally Backman is ejected during a game in Anderson, SC.

The events that led to Backman’s ejection: Outfielder Doc Brooks questions the location of a called strike. Later in the same at bat, the umpire calls a ball. Brooks asks the umpire the location of the pitch, words are exchanged. Brooks is ejected, Backman emerges from the dugout. Backman asks why his player was ejected, the umpire refuses to answer him, saying “You can read it in my report.”
