Cubs manager David Ross ejected for arguing with home plate umpire (Video)

David Ross ejected for arguing with home plate umpire, Mets vs. Cubs, 7/16/2022
Chicago Cubs manager David Ross was tossed from Saturday's early game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets for arguing with the home plate umpire.

It happened at the end of the second inning as Ross was arguing about a call with umpire Ramon DeJesus. Speculation is that Ross disagreed with a couple of high fast balls to Cubs batter PJ Higgins that were called strikes. Higgins ultimately struck out swinging with the count 0-2.

Unfortunately, this video does not show the moment that DeJesus tosses Ross. We will update this post if video of that moment becomes available.

The Cubs are struggling at 34-55 and near the cellar of the National League Central division, only a half game up on Cincinnati. Naturally, Ross is frustrated and looking to find a way to spark his team. Unfortunately, that may be a daunting task against a team as talented as the Mets. Ross will be available for the late game of the doubleheader.

This was the second consecutive game of the series that Ross has been ejected from, as he was also tossed during Thursday's 8-0 loss to the Mets. Friday night's game at Wrigley Field was rained out and rescheduled as part of a doubleheader Saturday.
