Angels’ Yunel Escobar ejected for drawing what looks like a plate in the infield dirt
Yunel Escobar’s third ejection of the season definitely wasn’t the most conventional.
The Los Angeles Angels infielder was tossed in the seventh inning by home plate umpire Tim Timmons for drawing what appeared to be a plate in the infield dirt. Escobar apparently wasn’t pleased with a check-swing call earlier in the game and showed his displeasure using his artistic skills.

Escobar’s temper isn’t a new issue for the veteran infielder, who has a long history of being ejected during his 10-year career. Escobar is batting .317 with three homers and 27 RBI this season.
