College baseball coach takes soda bottle with him as he gets ejected from game

Mar 27, 2023

A college baseball head coach went viral for an odd reason over the weekend.

Austin Peay was taking on Liberty in an Atlantic Sun Conference matchup on Saturday when Nathan Keeter hit a home run off Governors pitcher Jackie Robinson, as part of an eight-run first inning, and pointed to the opposing team’s dugout in celebration.

In the third inning, Keeter faced retaliation from Austin Peay’s Peyton Jula. Keeter was thrown at, resulting in the ejection of Jula, catcher Trevor Conley and head coach Ronald Fanning.

Fanning raised eyebrows when he came to discuss the ejection with the home-plate umpire holding a two-liter bottle of soda. Fanning raised the bottle of soda to the crowd as he walked off the field. Jula was seen getting back on the bus for the rest of the game.
