MANNY RAMIREZ IS EJECTED BY HOME-PLATE UMPIRE JOHN HIRSHBECK TUESDAY

For a guy who should be well rested, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez sure gets a lot of time off. Fresh from a 50-game suspension, Ramirez was replaced early in his first two games back for defensive purposes. He was rested by Dodgers manager Joe Torre on Sunday. Monday the Dodgers had the day off, and Tuesday Manny didn’t make it past the fifth inning.

Ramirez was ejected by home-plate umpire John Hirshbeck after tossing his bat and helmet following a called third strike in a game against the Mets. New York fans gave Ramirez a rousing ovation after he was tossed. The same fans had booed him earlier in the game. It was the first New York appearance for Ramirez since returning from his drug suspension.

Ramirez didn’t seem too concerned about leaving the game early, joking “five and fly-just like a ptcher” to reporters after the game. It was the fifth career ejection for Ramirez.
