Guillen Ejected In Marlins Loss To BoSox
Marlins Stadium Construction (3/25/11)
FORT MYERS (AP) — Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was ejected for arguing a foul ball call and got a wave goodbye from Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine in Boston’s 5-3 win in 10 innings Monday.
Guillen, known for his volatile nature, is in his first season with the Marlins. He was tossed by first base umpire Tim Timmons in the sixth inning after a grounder down the line by Miami’s Terry Tiffee was ruled foul.
Guillen disputed whether it was Timmons’ call to make. Boston reliever Andrew Bailey had started into his set position when time was called. Guillen walked from the dugout, shouted and banged his hands together a few times.
After about 20 seconds, Guillen exited across the diamond. As he left, Valentine waved at Guillen a couple of times.
