MLB Gameday glitch gives Statcast numbers on Joe Maddon’s literal ejection

Tuesday September 13th, 2016

MLB’s Gameday feed gave us a good chuckle on Tuesday night.

When Cubs manager Joe Maddon was ejected in the ninth inning of a 4–1 win over the Cardinals, the feed was very confused. It slapped a photo of Greg Garcia, who was set to pinch hit before the ejection, next to the Statcast numbers for Jeremy Hazelbaker’s home run.

The event description? Maddon’s ejection. He was literally ejected by Joe West.

Tonight's MLB feed on the ejection of Joe Maddon from the Cubs vs. Cardinals game gave some pretty good stats on his ejection from baseball

That’s got to hurt.
