What is Ejection?

In baseball, ejection is an action taken by an umpire which removes a player, coach or manager from the game. The person ejected must leave the field of play and may not remain in the dugout until the game has concluded. A player, coach or manager may be ejected by any umpire on the field who believes the person in question is behaving in an unsportsmanlike manner.
