Chicago Cubs: A combination of fiery players and umpires with big egos is a great recipe for some colorful ejections. Here’s a look back at some of the best.
A lot of things can get a crowd at a baseball game fired up, one of those things is an ejection of a player and/or coach by one of the umpires. The Chicago Cubs faithful has been treated to some very memorable ones over the years. Sometimes they end with hats being kicked, bats being thrown, or even Gatorade coolers being smashed.
Since there are so many ejections for each team every year, it can be difficult to keep track of the best ones. However some are so memorable they stand the test of time. To umpires, it is another day at the office, while to fans it can be an added treat to their baseball viewing experience.
So what are five of the best Cubs ejections over the years? Well it is very subjective and it is truly difficult to make a list, but we came up with this one. Keep in mind that the ejections on this list include those that resulted in player/coach confrontations with umpires, so fights between players do not count. So no, the players ejected in the infamous Cubs-White Sox 2006 brawl is not included.
