Not surprised Joe West involved, that is one ump that holds grudges a long time...
(however I give him credit for having the guts to making the right call in Game 6 of the ALCS on A-Rod at Yankee Stadium. )



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In a stunning series of events, Sammy Sosa was ejected from the Orioles' Spring Training game against the Nationals on Saturday afternoon while standing in right field in the top of the second inning.
Sosa was called out on strikes to end the first inning by home-plate umpire Joe West. An angry Sosa disputed the call and walked out to take his position in right field. Before Washington's Brad Wilkerson stepped to the plate to begin the second inning, second-base umpire C.B. Bucknor motioned to West at home plate, who then pointed to Sosa in right field, ejecting him from the game.

Probably boning up on his 'don't understand english' routine for when it's his turn to testify before Congress.

Default Sosa Ejected from Spring Training Game....

Yeah, he took it the wrong way? There's only one way to take it. Apparently, Sammy is also warning all other outfielders to beware the short-tempered umpires around the league. Someone needs to buy this guy a clue...

Default Sosa Ejected in ST game

Sosa tossed in second inning
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- As an encore to his successful debut with the Baltimore Orioles, Sammy Sosa did something even more memorable: He got ejected from a spring training game while playing the outfield.

Sosa was tossed in the second inning of the Orioles' 9-6 loss to the Washington Nationals on Saturday. It was the first time in 34 years that Baltimore and Washington met on the baseball diamond, but the result was far less compelling than Sosa's surprise exit.



Traded from the Chicago Cubs to Baltimore during offseason, Sosa launched his career with the Orioles by getting two hits, including a homer, on Friday. His stint Saturday was much shorter.



The sequence of events that led to his ejection by second base umpire C.B. Bucknor began in the bottom of the first inning, when Sosa was called out by home plate umpire Joe West on a high third strike. Sosa briefly expressed his displeasure with the call before taking his place in right field.



After Baltimore starter Daniel Cabrera opened the second inning by going to a 2-0 count on leadoff hitter Brad Wilkerson, Sosa was ejected.



"I said, 'That was a strike," Sosa said, "and then the second-base umpire was like, 'Knock it off.' I said something back to him, and that was everything. I was all the way in right field, but I guess he took it the wrong way and threw me out of the game."



Sosa said his comments were not directed directly at Bucknor, but at West, who was well out of earshot.
"I told (Bucknor), 'Come on, this is spring training," Sosa said. "I was like, 'Wow, you can't even say anything in this game."
Linky
So much for everyone loving him...

According the the TV announcers, what then happened was Sosa went out to right field where a fan shouted something to the effect of, "It was a strike, Sammy!" Sammy turned around, I'm guessing to say something to the fan, and the 2nd base umpire told him to turn back around, at which point Sammy said something to the 2nd base umpire (the TV reporter didn't say what). The 2nd base umpire tossed him, at which point Sham-Me took a slooooowww afternoon stroll to 2nd base to throw his glove at the feet of the ump.

Needless to say it was all very strange for a spring training game. Roid rage is right!

"Sammy did it for the fans.... Sammy just wants to entertain them... Sammy didn't hear Joe West or anyone else throw me out... Sammy came back giving the umps a chance to overturn their decision... I love baseball... I love the fans... Chicago been berry, berry good to me. Baltimore is berry, berry good to me".


SAMMY SOSA WATCH: 2/4, 1 HR, 1 RBI IN SPRING TRAINING!

It's probably not roid rage, just the Cub mentality inside of him. While most teams are usually getting ready for the upcoming season in spring training, the cubs seem to spend all of their time thinking of excuses they'll have to use during the season.

Withdrawl, plus you all know how he gets when the fans don't pleasure him... Earplugs for the Sox v. flubs games after the cork incident, last year after the media made fun of him for the DL stint and ripped him for sucking finally the 'fans' started to get on him after the collective choke job they pulled late last year. "It was a strike ShaME" nice
