WICHITA 14 SPRINGFIELD CARDINALS 1

stl

Wednesday afternoon, was fairly routine until the 7th inning…..third-base umpire Joe West confiscated Cards reliever Giovanny Gallegos’ hat in the seventh inning.

West, who, on Tuesday, set Major League Baseball’s record for most games umpired, apparently noticed a foreign substance on the bill of Gallegos’ hat and made him change hats. West confiscated the cap under MLB rule 6.02(c)(7), which says pitchers may not have “on his person, or in his possession, any foreign substance.” Shortly thereafter, Cardinals manager Mike Shildt argued the ruling and was ejected.

THE Belville News, COVERING THE CARDINALS, REPORTED, West said that second base second base umpire Dan Bellino spotted a substance on Gallegos’ hat and initiated the removal process. When West asked Gallegos to remove the hat, Gallegos said the substance was sunscreen.
West said that he asked Gallegos to remove the hat before pitching with it on, in order to keep him in the game. He also explained that Shildt was ejected for yelling against West’s decision and using profanity. Now, Gallegos’ hat is in the custody of a MLB compliance officer and it will be sent to the league office in New York for further examination.
