Reds manager ejected after another Yankees pitcher undergoes extensive sticky-substance check

May 20, 2023

Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell was ejected from Friday night's game against the New York Yankees after umpires left Clarke Schmidt in the game following a substance check where they made him wash his hands.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, umpires underwent a routine check on Schmidt's hands, but things took a turn when Schmidt went back toward the dugout, and not the mound.

When Schmidt returned to the field, umpires checked his hands once again, and he was given the all-clear. However, Bell disagreed with the umpires' decision.
