Rhodes Ejected for Offensive Look

Rhodes Ejected for Offensive Look
Tuffy Rhodes was ejected for an "offensive look" at the home plate umpire. Apparently, he struck out but didn't do anything untoward. However, the umpire thought the look directed at him was so bad that Rhodes had to go (see today's Daily Yomiuri, Nikkan Sports, etc. for details). It's nice to see the officials are maintaining their reputation for absurdity.

It's stuff like this that makes me wish SportsCenter or Baseball Tonight had international editions. I'd love to see John Kruk and Peter Gammons discussing something like this. Sure, it's Tuffy, and the umpire will probably say he was afraid he was about to be mugged, still.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
