601 Ejections Take Place During 2012

From The Sept. 7, 2012 Issue of Collegiate Baseball

 

By LOU PAVLOVICH, JR.

Editor/Collegiate Baseball

 

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — For the first time in history, the total number of ejections in NCAA baseball games has been made public by the Association.

During the 2012 spring baseball season, 601 ejections were reported from over 20,000 games that were played by 904 NCAA teams in Divisions I, II and III.

This total includes virtually every type of ejection possible, including verbal confrontations with umpires, fighting, running into a catcher, purposely throwing at batters by pitchers, arguing balls and strikes, etc.

“Several years ago, the Rules Committee was concerned about the relationship of coaches and umpires on the field which led to ejections,” said McArtor.

“But we had no data to refer to in terms of how many were ejected and whether they were head coaches, assistants, players or other personnel.

“So we came up with a system where ejection reports were filed by umpires to their umpire coordinators usually in conferences.

“Then the coordinators would distribute the reports to the NCAA from there.

“I received a copy of all the ejections from NCAA Divisions I, II and III and compiled the data.

“The total numbers revealed some interesting data. And I’m sure it will be a great tool in the future that will help the Rules Committee make informed decisions.”

More On Ejections: Gene McArtor explains how all 601 ejections were broken down in different categories. See the Sept. 7, 2012 issue of Collegiate Baseball.
